Have you lived through an emergency? Did you experience North America's largest power outage in 2003? Did you live through the Kelowna forest fires of 2003? Did Hurricane Juan or the 1998 ice storm teach you some lessons? Were you able to get by for at least the first 72 hours on your own?
Also, be sure to read the 72 hour stories, accounts of what others have done to get through those first crucial hours of an emergency.
The views expressed in these stories are entirely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the positions or policies of Public Safety Canada.
