The City of Campbell River, Strathcona Regional District and BC Hydro have been working together to communicate new information from BC Hydro regarding the potential impact of a major earthquake in our community.

The first hour of the session will feature speakers on:

  • Earthquakes;
  • BC Hydro dam safety, capital projects and evacuation areas; and
  • Community emergency planning.

The second hour will be a question and answer period with various experts, including Emergency Management BC.
