Prepare for winter storms and create storm safety messages to share on social media.
In this activity, students, via storytelling and group work, will prepare for winter storms, and create a message to share on social media.
The purpose is to get this vital information out to others so they too can get prepared for winter storms and power outages. Students can use relevant hashtags in their post to help amplify their message such as #BCstorm. You can share this B.C. government storm safety social media toolkit with your students for some samples of safety messages.
Power outages can happen for a variety of reasons, such as bad weather, motor vehicle accidents and even animals interfering with our equipment. Depending on the cause, some can be restored very quickly, while others can last a few hours, or even a few days in the event of a major storm or emergency.
Follow the below tips to keep you and your family safe during an outage, especially if it's a major storm and an extended power outage.
Standby and backup generators
Food storage and cooking
Staying warm and connected
