Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

Ann Pacey presented an insightful talk to a local group of North Shore neighbours mainly from Lower Lonsdale, Capilano and Lynn Valley areas last night. Her presentation and the model seems so effective and can be easily implemented!

It got me thinking about how to incorporate this for strata buildings and rental apartment buildings - built in communities that should be able to thrive in emergencies with a little focused advanced planning. I plan on looking online for prep resources that pertain to multi-family dwellings - if I find anything I'll post it here for starters.

I encourage other Villages to review Ann's handouts that are posted online here, find out how emergency prep has been implemented in the Dunbar area, and consider setting up some meetings. Thanks again Kathryn and the folks at Quayside Village for hosting this.
