What’s shaking, Victoria?
The City is inviting residents to participate in a provincewide earthquake drill during the ShakeOut Victoria event on Oct. 19. Participants will drop, hold and take cover with schools, businesses and other organizations across the province at 10:19 a.m. for two minutes.
The drill is a reminder of what to do if an earthquake hits:
- DROP to the floor
- Take COVER under a desk/sturdy furniture and protect your head, torso
- HOLD ON to the furniture until shaking stops, and 60 seconds afterward
Those wishing to participate can sign up at ShakeOutBC.ca.
