Emergency Preparedness Month
Beginning with Fire Prevention Week October 3-9, in partnership with the National Fire Protection Association, the City will help educate on this year's theme - learning the sights and sounds of fire safety. We encourage you to take a moment to watch the Fire Safety House video (above) with your family to familiarize yourselves with some of the sights and sounds experienced during a fire.
FIRE PREVENTION WEEK OCT 3-9
The week of October 10, residents can get ready for an emergency, such as an earthquake, by preparing an emergency kit, signing up for call alerts and creating an emergency plan.
PREPARE FOR AN EMERGENCY OCT 10-16
On Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 10:21 am, get ready to drop, cover and hold on! The Great ShakeOut BC earthquake drill will take place at 10:21 am.
