Did you know that the Ottawa and Gatineau region is at moderate risk for a major earthquake? Would you know what to do during an earthquake? Join the millions of others around the world participating in the Great ShakeOut.
On October 15, set your alarm for 10:15am, and when it goes off, regardless of where you are or what you’re doing, do what you should do when an earthquake strikes:DROP COVER and HOLD ON! Then take a selfie and email it to the Are you ready? team.
