ShakeOut Partners

We all must get better prepared for major earthquakes, and practice how to protect ourselves when they happen. The purpose of the ShakeOut is to help people and organizations do both.

The ShakeOut is made possible by generous support of several sponsors, committed organizers from many organizations, the encouragement of many others, and a growing legion of active BC Earthquake Alliance associates throughout the province that share the ShakeOut locally.



ShakeOut BC is a partnership of many key organizations of the BC Earthquake Alliance:

Government of British Columbia
Canadian Red Cross
Capital Region Emergency
Awareness Network
Simon Fraser University

Public Safety Canada
Natural Resources Canada

City of Vancouver
Township of Esquimalt
District of Oak Bay
District of Saanich
Town of View Royal

Angus Reid Public Opinion

Bernadette Woit, Consultant, Schools Emergency Planning & Preparedness

Many other government agencies, businesses, organizations, and community groups are also promoting the ShakeOut to their members and constituents.
