Be prepared for an emergency

Officials with the White Rock emergency program are hosting a free emergency preparedness workshop May 17 at the White Rock Community Centre.

The 7-8 p.m. session has room for 50 participants, and will be led by members of the city’s fire-rescue crew.

It follows Emergency Preparedness Week, which kicked off Sunday (May 6), and encourages citizens to be prepared to take care of themselves and their family for at least 72 hours in the event of an emergency.

To sign up for the workshop, visit webreg.whiterockcity.ca and enter barcode #23146, or call 604-541-2161. The community centre is located at 15154 Russell Ave. For details on what to include in a basic emergency kit, visit www.getprepared.gc.ca/knw/kt/bas-eng.aspx
