Canadians aren't ready for disaster: Survey
By QMI AGENCY
Updated 1 day ago
Following the devastating earthquake in New Zealand this week and several other high-profile quakes in the past year, a new survey has found that while Canadians are worried about natural disasters, they are woefully unprepared for one.
"This study shows us that Canadians have a gap in their knowledge about what to do if faced with a natural disaster," said Lesley Lewis, CEO of the Ontario Science Centre.
Up to 20%of Canadians believe that they will not be able to last the recommended 72 hours in case of a natural disaster, but as many as 24% of Canadians think that a natural disaster will pose a direct threat to their home within the next five years.
