Disasters may be beyond our control, but there are ways to reduce the risk and the impact of whatever emergency we might face. Residents and business owners are encouraged to join Parksville-Qualicum Beach in taking action to be prepared personally, as an individual, a family and in the workplace. Emergencies can strike at any time so being prepared is critical since it can take time for help to arrive. Are you prepared for an emergency? Do you know the risks? Do you have a plan?
