To: The UBC Community
The University is participating in ShakeOut BC on October 17 at 10:17 a.m. We invite everyone on campus to join in and “Drop, Cover and Hold On” to learn what to do in the event of an earthquake.
In BC, minor earthquakes are not infrequent and a major earthquake will eventually occur in Vancouver. ShakeOut BC is a good way for the UBC community to prepare. This year, hundreds of thousands of people will participate across BC.
You can participate by:
1. Set your alarm and at 10:17 a.m. on October 17th, “Drop, Cover and Hold On”
– wherever you are on campus.
