Damage from an earthquake and/or tsunami could be catastrophic for our isolated west coast communities. We cannot rely on the federal, provincial, or municipal governments to be there for us with supplies in the days and weeks immediately after the event. As residents of the area, we need to prepare to look after ourselves for a minimum of 72 hours, but more likely three to four weeks as resources will first be spent helping those in the more heavily populated regions such as Vancouver and Victoria.
What you need depends on whether or not you live in the inundation zone. Those of us living at high-ground can stockpile supplies to get us through multiple weeks. If you live in the inundation zone, you will need a lightweight "grab and go" kit that you can run with to a safe location. You will also need to arrange for a larger supply store to be kept for you in a safe high-ground location that you can make your way to in the case of a tsunami warning.
