Share your earthquake prep plans with other CBC News readers in the comments section below.
When an earthquake occurs, your first warning may be a swaying sensation if you're in a building, a sudden noise or roar.
Be prepared to be on your own without help for 72 hours or more--- at home, in your car, at work. After you have followed the advice in this booklet, more local information on how to prepare for an earthquake should be available from your Municipal Emergency Program Coordinator.

Every effort has been made, within the limited space available, to provide you with useful information to prepare effectively for an earthquake in B.C.
This means that on October 17th wherever you are at that moment—at home, at work, at school, anywhere—you should Drop, Cover, and Hold On as if there were a major earthquake occurring at that very moment, and stay in this position for at least 60 seconds or until the shaking stops. BC is part of the “Ring of Fire” which is a 40,000 kilometer horseshoe area where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. Your telephone may not work after an earthquake, or it may take a while to get a dial tone.
