Tsunami Preparedness Forum - November 4

Emergency Management BC, in partnership with the Kitimat Emergency Program, is putting on a public education forum on tsunami preparedness on Monday, November 4th from 7 to 9 pm in the Community Room at Riverlodge.

With continued public interest in tsunamis due to the 2011 Japan tsunami and the 2012 Haida Gwaii tsunami, the forum is an opportunity to encourage coastal British Columbia residents to take action to prepare for tsunamis. 

EMBC Seismic Specialist Teron Moore will give a “Tsunami 101” presentation introducing the basic concepts of the hazard as well as preparedness actions to ready community members for a future tsunami. EMBC Regional Manager Maurie Hurst will also be in attendance, and the session will include a question and answer period.
