Oct 17 was the official day of Shake Out BC day. Millions of people worldwide (Including BC Assessment) participated in how to drop cover and hold on at 10:17 am during ‘great shakeout earthquake drills’. The main goal is to get British Columbians prepared in the event of a major earthquake. Participating in the Shake Out BC drill is an opportunity to learn what to do before, during, and after an earthquake.
Flu season is among us once again. You can play an active role in staying healthy and preventing the spread of the seasonal flu.
