ShakeOut Media Centre

News media play a crucial role in informing people about the Great British Columbia ShakeOut. Media organizations (radio, TV, print, online), reporters, writers, etc. can be involved in three ways:

  • Having your own earthquake drill on October 18, 2018 (see flyer)
  • Promoting participation in the Great British Columbia ShakeOut
  • Playing the Drill Broadcast (Radio stations: join the list!), and
  • Reporting about the Great British Columbia ShakeOut.
