The Great British Columbia Shakeout

On October 19 at 10:19 a.m., millions of people worldwide will practice how to “Drop, Cover and Hold On” during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills. 

British Columbians can join by registering for the 2017 Great British Columbia ShakeOut.  Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes – wherever you live, work, or travel.
