GET READY TO SHAKEOUT!

On October 16*, officially "ShakeOut BC Day," millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:16 a.m. during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills!

British Columbians can join by registering for the 2014 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.

* You can hold your ShakeOut drill any day in October if 10/16 does not work.
