Join BC in the largest earthquake drill in history! This Thursday Oct 19, at 10:19 am.
Resources- such as mp3 recordings and youtube links to play on computer- https://www.shakeout.org/drill/broadcast/
The Drill: Drop, Cover, and Hold On:
Drop to the ground, take Cover under a table or desk, and Hold On to it as if a major earthquake were happening (stay down for at least 60 seconds). Practice now so you will automatically protect yourself during earthquakes!
While still under the table, or wherever you are, look around and imagine what would happen in a major earthquake. What would fall on you or others? What would be damaged? What would life be like after? What will you do before the actual earthquake happens to reduce losses and quickly recover?
Finally, practice what your family, business, or community will do after the shaking stops.
Text First. Talk Second. l
A great step for after your "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" drill is to practice how to communicate with family, friends, and co-workers. Texting first before making phone calls is highly recommended.
Does this have you thinking about preparedness and what happens after? If so, please join CI ESS team- next meeting Linnaea Ed Centre Thursday Oct 19, 7pm Lakeview Room.
Thank you for helping build community resiliency and self reliance!
