ShakeOut BC - October 18, 2012

At 10:20 a.m. on October 18, 2012, thousands of British Columbians will “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” in the Great British Columbian ShakeOut, the largest earthquake drill in BC history!

We want every person who works, lives, and plays in Chilliwack to participate in the drill.  You can register just your family or your school, business, or organization.  The best way to ShakeOut BC is to personalize the experience.  If you will be at work at 10:20 a.m. on October 18, 2012, have your entire office practice what they would do in an earthquake.  If you are at school, have your class participate in the drill.  Make a plan with your family. Designate an out-of-state contact.  Imagine a real earthquake and how you would actually react to it!  Check out www.shakeoutbc.ca/register and register to participate.
