Personal Emergency Preparedness - Are you Prepared?

 

 

Last year's Rock Creek Fire, and the current wildfire activity in Northern BC and Alberta, are good reminders that emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. Your own personal preparedness can go a long way in assisting you in managing the emergency and recovery afterward. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary has made a variety of guides and plans from PreparedBC available on their website to help residents prepare incase of an emergency in the area.

It may look like an old gas pump from the past but looks can be deceiving. This is in fact a new Electric Car Charging Station located at the Kettle River Museum in Midway. Kudos to the Public Works Foreman for combining the past and the present to create a unique home for the charging station.
