Free Emergency Preparedness Workshops

Are you and your family ready for an emergency -- like a power outage, winter storm, earthquake or tsunami? Do you know what to put in an emergency kit?

If not, the Emergency Management Victoria is conducting free workshops to educate you.

The workshops will teach citizens what to have on hand for at least seven days without outside assistance, depending on the emergency.

The sessions will also tell you what to do protect your home from an earthquake, and how to reunite with your loved ones after a disaster.

There are 17 workshops planned between now and November, and free customized workshops for business, community groups, and housing complexes are available upon request.

To register online go to or call 250.920.3373.
