Dunbar Earthquake and Emergency Preparedness (DEEP) continues to work toward building a stronger and more resilient community in times of emergency and disaster.
The group offers neighbourhoods assistance in emergency preparedness with our Map Your Neighbourhood Program (MYN) via Zoom. A group member will help a block volunteer organize the Zoom meeting by informing residents of the upcoming meeting with a postcard providing registration information. When the meeting date is set, the volunteer will be supported online by a member to go through and discuss a video presentation.
DEEP is also offering a presentation and a full set-up of DEEP’s Disaster Support Hub this spring. Our presenters include Dr. Carlos Ventura, Professor and Director Earthquake Engineering Research at UBC; and VECTOR, a volunteer group of HAM operators who assist the City of Vancouver and VPD with communications during or after an emergency or disaster.
Scheduled for this spring were presentations by Dr. Ventura on March 28; a meeting on April 25 (to be confirmed); and on May 28 or 29 at 10 a.m., a full set-up of the Disaster Support HUB at DCC.
