Prepare for Emergencies & Disasters

VIU Elder College LogoThis ElderCollege course starts with a discussion of the many types of emergency events that can befall BC, how vulnerable we are, and what governments are doing to minimize risks. We will then cover what we need to do as individuals, households and neighbourhoods, as we are the first line of preparedness and response. The final session includes a few desk-top exercises to empower you to turn a potential catastrophe into a mere inconvenience.

The course is scheduled for September 23 to October 21, 2019 on Vancouver Island University's Parksville campus.
