Why are earthquakes a top hazard in BC? Because 1000s of them happen every year along our coast. Most are too small to be felt, but the big ones with the potential to cause damage DO happen (although less often). Be ready: shakeoutbc.ca/register

When things go from bad to worse for an unprepared winter driver... a cautionary tale: bit.ly/3vl9LNt #ShiftIntoWinter
A wet road increases a vehicle's stopping distance. If the road is wet, reduce your speed & reduce your likelihood of becoming involved in a vehicular incident. Drive to the road conditions, ++ ensure BOTH your headlights AND tail lights are on. #ShiftIntoWinter #SeeAndBeSeen
