British Columbians set for province’s annual earthquake drill

More than 600,000 British Columbians are getting ready to “shake out” on Thursday during the province’s annual earthquake drill.

Sybille Sanderson is the Emergency Program Coordinator for the Cowichan Valley Regional District.

Sanderson says they’re encouraging people to think about being ready for anything – not just an earthquake.  And she says a good starting point is a “grab and go” kit, which can be kept in your car.

Sanderson says the events planned over the next couple of weeks include a major public information session on Wednesday at 7 at Ladysmith Secondary.

You can register to take part in the drill at shakeoutbc.ca.
