If you haven’t seen a copy of the new PreparedBC resources, get your hands on them. Tailored towards tourism operators, the guides are a practical way that tourism industry players can take emergency preparedness in their own hands.
According to these resources, the top ten risks in BC are:
- Severe Weather
- Power Outages
- Hazardous Material Spills
- Disease Outbreaks
Learn more about navigating these challenges by visiting www.gov.bc.ca/PreparedBC for a map of risks by district. The site is also a good resource for creating plans for your home, school, or community.
