Tsunami preparation week in Saanich
The District of Saanich is encouraging residents to develop a personal emergency preparedness plan during Emergency Management B.C.’s Tsunami Preparedness Week.
“Whether it is a tsunami, earthquake or other emergency event, having a plan in place and a few supplies on hand improves your chances of staying safe, healthy and comfortable,” said Frank Macdonald, Saanich deputy fire chief.
A tsunami along B.C.’s coast is a rare but real threat. The last major tsunami to hit B.C. shores was on March 27, 1964 when Port Alberni was inundated with water following the 9.2 Great Alaska Earthquake.
Saanich’s Emergency Program is running a 90-minute presentation on Wednesday (April 20), 7 p.m. at Gordon Head Recreation Centre, 4100 Lambrick Way.
