Earthquake simulator comes to Cowichan Valley
The recent forest fires in Fort McMurray have reinforced the importance of preparing for emergencies.
On Vancouver Island, one emergency residents need to prepare for, is a powerful earthquake.
The Cowichan Valley Regional District will be hosting the Shake Zone Simulator a week from today (Thurs).
The Quake Cottage will allow people to safely experience a significant 8.0 magnitude earthquake.
The Quake Cottage, and some other displays, will be located at Island Savings Centre from 10 am to 4 pm.
This portable earthquake simulator is a partnership with Insurance Bureau of Canada and Health Emergency Management BC.
