Get Ready To Shakeout

On October 17, and 10:17am - BCIT will participate in the world's largest earthquake drill.  This drill will be an opportunity to practice how to "Drop, Cover and Hold On".

Participating is a great way to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes - wherever you live, work, go to school, or travel. 

Drop, Cover and Hold On is the appropriate action to reduce injury and death during an earthquake.  We want all students, faculty and staff at every BCIT Campus to practice this so that it's your immediate response when an earthquake hits.  After all, seconds count. 

At Burnaby Campus, there will be a special event occurring to mark this annual drill. 

We will also be testing two communication tools: BCIT Alert mass emergency notification system, and, the Safety Wise App.

For more information about this BCIT Community event, contact Emergency Management.
