Emergency Preparedness & Safety Days
May 10-12, 2016
What are Emergency Preparedness & Safety Days?
Inspired by National Emergency Preparedness Week, SFU is hosting Emergency Preparedness & Safety Days to highlight important ways for the SFU and surrounding community to get prepared and stay safe whether on or off campus.
As well, as part of the SFU 50th Anniversary, Safety & Risk Services is celebrating 50 years of safety and security at SFU!
This year we have three days full of engaging events. Come for one or check out them all!
Tues, May 10th - Earthquake Simulator
Did you know that according to Natural Resources Canada, there’s a 30% chance of an earthquake big enough to cause significant property damage hitting southwestern B.C. within the next 50 years?
Come experience what a 8.5 earthquake actually feels like in the Quake Cottage earthquake simulator. Afterward, learn how to best protect yourself during an earthquake and how to be prepared for the aftermath, including making or purchasing your own emergency kits.
