Emergencies happen. Depending on their severity, your household could be on its own for several days while officials help those who need it most.

Sounds scary, but it doesn't have to be. PreparedBC's website can help you understand the hazards you face and how to prepare for them. 

Get Prepared for an Emergency

Are Most British Columbians Prepared? 

PreparedBC conducted a Personal Preparedness Survey in December 2017 to understand whether British Columbians are ready for emergencies. The results showed most aren't. Participants were asked about the risks in their region, whether they had taken steps to prepare, and if they hadn't, what obstacles were in the way. PreparedBC plans to conduct another survey by 2021 to measure any improvements. Help us shift the needle by getting ready yourself.
