" Guide helps Canadians prepare in event of a sudden earthquake
OTTAWA, January 25, 2011 – The Honourable Vic Toews, Canada’s Minister of Public Safety, today released the Government of Canada’s updated Earthquake Guide, a document which helps Canadian families prepare for – and respond to – a sudden earthquake.
The release of this updated Earthquake Guide comes as British Columbians prepare for a province-wide earthquake drill on the 311th anniversary of the largest quake in Canadian history. The ‘Great British Columbia ShakeOut’ on January 26, 2011, will be an excellent opportunity for British Columbians to learn more about the earthquake hazard in their province, and encourage proactive thinking about emergency preparedness.
