Shakeout BC 2016

Oct 13, 2016

Time to take part in the Great British Columbia ShakeOut! 

On Thursday, October 20, at 10:20 am, the Corporation of Delta will participate in the Great British Columbia ShakeOut. 

Residents of Delta are encouraged to take the time to properly practice their "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" technique, while actively reviewing their emergency preparedness. Learn how to "Drop, Cover and Hold On" in a variety of situations by visiting the ShakeOut BC Earthquake Safety Video Series.

With over 660,000 people across BC already registered, the Corporation of Delta invites you to register your family or organization and show that you're prepared to survive and recover in the event of a large-scale earthquake. 

#ShakeOutBC is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes. The ShakeOut has also been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.

Check out the Preparedness Now - TV Documentary below. The documentary simulates a hypothetical, but realistic disaster scenario and looks at what damage can be expected and what people can do to prepare themselves.
