Tomorrow morning, British Columbians will join millions world wide as they put in a little Earthquake preparation work, with a practice drill as to what to do should an earthquake strike, part of the Great British Columbia Shake Out.
The event held every year on the third Thursday of October provides a chance for schools, offices, industry and those at home to put into practice their own response plan should the ground start to shake beneath our feet.
So far, close to 9,000 participants on the North Coast have registered to take part in this years emergency response drill, with community groups and schools of the region leading the pack of those ready to Drop, Cover and Hold On.
The World wide Earthquake drill takes place tomorrow at 10:21 AM
You can register as an individual or a group from this link to the Great Shake out website.
