We were disassembling some pallet boards and were listening to a CBC 92.5 talk show that was wondering if people were ready for a major earth quake so I decided to go get some answers.

Emergency Response Assembly Station

Emergency Response
& Contingency Plan
for UBID’s Water Source and Supply System

Union Bay Muster Station “A muster drill is a mandatory safety exercise with the objective to familiarize all guests and crew with the location (muster station) where they are to assemble in the unlikely event of an emergency.”

The Emergency Operations Centre for the Union Bay Improvement District is

the Union Bay fire hall at 5471 Island Highway.

The Union Bay Community Hall at 5401 Island Highway is designated as the

emergency shelter for Union Bay residents and four Emergency Social Services

containers are stored in the basement of the hall. Due to potential for the hall

to flood, it is recommended that another emergency shelter and container

storage location be considered, for example, the former elementary school

building which sits on higher ground and way from Washer Creek.

Bottled water is available at the Fire Hall, Community Hall and the operations

building on McLeod Road.

Sandbags are available during periods of potential flooding and are available

24 hours a day. The CVRD and EMCON require you to fill your own bags and

filled bags may not be available. Please come prepared to fill your own.
