BE PREPARED – A Manual to Get You Started

Living on the West Coast earthquakes and a tsunami are real concerns. Emergency Management British Columbia has published a manual that will assist you in getting prepared.  As part of the emergency response it is even more important that ARES operators are properly prepared. Remember ARES is part of the solution, not part of the problem.  For a look at the manual please view the website noted below.
