Earthquake Preparedness Personal & Family
We all witnessed the earthquakes in New Zealand, Haiti and Chile. Living in Vancouver, we too could be faced with an earthquake—yet few of us are prepared. We’ll cover developing your family emergency plan, how to conduct a “Home Hazard” Hunt and what to do when an earthquake strikes.
When disaster strikes, ESS volunteers will be relied upon to assist those who have been impacted. Volunteers are trained to operate reception and group lodging centers during emergencies, which provide food, clothing, lodging, pet services, and other required services. In addition, volunteers can participate in the Volunteer, Pet, Public Education and Exercise planning committees.
