UBC Get Ready to ShakeOut on Oct. 18
This Oct. 18, UBC participates in ShakeOut BC, a province-wide earthquake drill. In BC, minor earthquakes are not infrequent and a major earthquake will eventually occur in Vancouver. We’re asking everyone at UBC to be prepared.
On Oct. 18 at 10:18 a.m. we will:
- Drop, Cover and Hold on for one minute
- If there is nothing to get under, move to an inner wall
- Move away from windows and falling hazards
As an HR administrator, you can play a key role in helping us spread the word about this important event. Please share the attached ShakeOut presentation with your Department, and contact Erin King for the Powerpoint version of the presentation.
Learn more about ShakeOut BC at www.emergency.ubc.ca/shakeout.
