Description: 

Earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and wildfires are just some of the potential hazards in British Columbia. During a disaster, phone, gas, electrical and water services may be disrupted. Roads could be blocked, stores closed and gas stations out-of-service. You and your family could be on your own for several days while emergency responders work to save lives and manage the aftermath. It may be weeks before infrastructure, utilities and essential services are restored. Are you prepared to cope? Completing the steps in this guide will help you to answer “yes”.
