Tsunami Preparedness Week
As VECTOR members we value our ability to be prepared to provide emergency communications. Remember the first priority is not radio but your personal safety and the safety of those you care for. We can’t be helpful if we’ve not looked after our own needs and those of our family first.
Along those lines let’s all Be Tsunami Smart and review this material from EMBC. Know what to do if in a coastal area when an earthquake has occured.
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 just over 50 years, those of us living in a tsunami zone need to be prepared – both with knowledge and a 72-hour kit.
