Social media toolkits for emergency awareness

Creating awareness about preparing for emergencies and seasonal hazards is an important step toward building resilient communities. To help, we created easy-to-use social media packages with pre-formatted content and graphics.


General preparedness 

Disasters can happen seasonally or strike without warning. Getting prepared will help you respond to and recover from a disaster faster and more effectively. Share this content with your followers to help them prepare for any hazards they may face.


Floods

Seasonal flooding often happens in spring due to heavy rain and snow melt. Share this content with your followers to help them prepare for, respond to and recover from a flood. 


Wildfires

Wildfires happen every year, from both natural and human causes. Share this content with your followers to help them prepare for, respond to and recover from wildfires. 


Storms

During the fall and winter months, B.C. experiences seasonal hazards such as severe weather, flooding and power outages. Share this content with your followers to help them stay safe during a storm.


Earthquakes and tsunamis

We live in a seismically active zone, so it's important to be ready for a potential earthquake or coastal tsunami. Share this content with your followers to help them prepare for, and respond safely to earthquakes and tsunamis.


Fire safety

Fire and life safety messages and toolkits are meant to be used "as-is" or customized with your own message to reach the people in your community, school or home. These resources are geared towards educators, but are also relevant to people who want to learn about fire prevention and how to stay safe from fire.
