Colwood hosts emergency preparedness workshops

Two chances for residents to attend workshops

Nearly two months after a tsunami warning caused a bit of a stir on the West Shore, the City of Colwood is teaching residents what to do during an emergency.

As part of the City’s tsunami and emergency preparedness workshops, residents will learn how a tsunami and other hazards could affect Colwood, what to include in a home and vehicle emergency kit, what to do to protect your home from an earthquake and how to reunite with your loved ones after a disaster.

RELATED: Tsunami warning an ‘exercise in precaution’

The first workshop takes place on Wednesday, March 21 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the City Hall. The next workshop takes place on Tuesday, April 17, also from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
