Thank you for participating! 🙂  You can go back to work now.

I learned some good tricks for this kind of procedure and have created a pre-setup post.  Did you participate by going under your nearest cover to hold on?  VIU had a few practice evacuations which was fun.  If you have any suggestion on how to improve this in the event of a real emergency, let me know!

THIS IS A DRILL

A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED. A TSUNAMI MAY ARRIVE AT ANY MOMENT.
