MONTRÉAL-NORD, Sept. 29, 2015 / CNW Telbec / - The Borough of Montréal-Nord encourages families, schools and organizations to participate in the La Grande Secousse du Québec event, organized on October 15 by the Association of civil security of Quebec. While there are several hundred earthquakes each year in Quebec, this is an opportunity to practice the safest technique possible during a major earthquake: bend down, take cover and hold on.
The exercise will take place on October 15 at 10:15 a.m., wherever people are at that time: at school, at work, at daycare or at home. The activity was designed to encourage people to review and update their emergency plan to limit the risk of injury, loss of life and property damage. This is also a good opportunity to prepare a 72 hour kit that can also be used for other types of emergency.
