Written by: Categories: Home Insurance

It wasn’t that long ago grocery stores ran out of food when the pandemic hit, and there seemed to be a rush of insanity throughout the greater Vancouver area. To be honest, there wasn’t a need for it – imagine if something catastrophic did happen that limited our resources. There’s something to be said about preparation.

There is a lot of speculation that it’s only a matter of time before a large earthquake hits Vancouver. 🙁 No one really knows, however, recent events are enough to get my butt in motion. I put together the World’s Best Essential Guide to Earthquake Prep for those of you, who like myself, could use a little refresher/motivation.

Over the years, there has been an increase in the number of extreme weather-related incidents.

Learn what you can do to protect yourself and your family. Download the complete guide to earthquake preparation.
