Tsunami Smart: Get the 101 Play

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 9.2M Great Alaska Earthquake. Even though it's been 50 years, those of us living in a tsunami zone need to be prepared - both with knowledge and a 72-hour kit. http://www.emergencyinfobc.gov.bc.ca/campaigns/be-tsunami-sm­art.html

SARScene Conference 2013: Chilliwack, BC Play

SARScene is an annual opportunity for search and rescue practitioners from across Canada to meet and learn about the latest in training and skills development. This year the event is being held at the RCMP Pacific Regional Training Centre in Chilliwack.

One highlight of the yearly conference is the SARScene Games, which showcases the role of SAR and promotes the sharing of skills in a friendly yet competitive environment. The Games consist of six SAR challenges that demand cooperation, knowledge and quick thinking by teams of four.

Emergency Volunteers Play

While there is no "I" in team, there is a "U" in volunteer! At Emergency Management BC, we recognize volunteers are the heart of emergency response. During a flood, wildfire, earthquake, tsunami, large-scale evacuation or other emergency, volunteers save lives, support families and help communities get back on their feet.
