GetMyKit.ca is helping Chemainus Secondary School to raise money for the purchase and updating of emergency supplies by hosting an Emergency Preparedness Workshop at the school on Wednesday, April 25 from 6:30-8 p.m.
“The entire community of Chemainus is invited to learn about why it’s important to have an emergency plan, what you should prepare for and which items to include in your emergency kit,” noted Jessica Johnston, marketing manager for GetMyKit.ca.
“What many people don’t know is that schools are not allotted money to ensure they have supplies on hand for students and staff should an emergency arise,” she added. “Often, it is up to parents to provide this money for life-saving emergency equipment and supplies. We need your help to help Chemainus Secondary achieve their goal. Come to the event to see how you can help.”
Seating is limited so pre-registration is required. Call 1-888-673-1222 to secure a spot.
The Get My Emergency Kit-Earthquake Preparedness night is a free workshop in the school’s Multi-Purpose Room, “teaching the community what each family needs to be prepared for an earthquake,” added Chemainus Secondary School vice-principal Jennie Hittinger.
Members of the community and families will have the opportunity to purchase survival kits.
“For each one of the kits sold, we at the school get $25 towards the purchase of supplies for our earthquake preparedness at the school,” noted Hittinger.
