Families, neighbours, and community organizations will need to work together to support each other while emergency service personnel are responding to high-priority incidents.
A major earthquake in Vancouver will impact everyone in our community.
Disaster support hubs are designated locations where you can initially gather to coordinate your efforts and offer assistance to other members of your community.
They are also the post-disaster locations where City staff and trained volunteers will prioritize getting information and providing services to the public.
There are 25 disaster support hubs located throughout the city.
