The Great British Columbia ShakeOut
Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) is committed to raising earthquake awareness and preparedness. This year, IBC is a presenting sponsor of The Great British Columbia ShakeOut 2012.
On Thursday, October 18th at 10:18 a.m., you are invited to join thousands of people who will Drop, Cover, and Hold On for the annual drill.
Approximately 5,000 mostly small earthquakes are recorded in Canada each year. In the past 100 years, at least nine earthquakes in or near Canada have registered a magnitude greater than 7. Participating in the ShakeOut keeps the issue top of mind and helps you better prepare to survive and recover from a potential major earthquake.
