That BCCPAC

urge all PACs to educate parents about the risks of seismic damage to their school and the potential for loss of life in the event of a major earthquake. That BCCPAC support a broad based parent advocacy campaign to target all levels of government to act urgently to upgrade schools.

BCCPAC utilize their web site and their Bulletin immediately to advise PACs to consult the Families for Seismic Safety website (www.fsssbc.org) in order to find information about school safety during earthquakes, FSSS activities, and lobbying information for parents.

And that BCCPAC meet with all levels of government to support the following protocol:

consider the seismic safety of our schools as a life safety issue rather than an educational issue

make a province-wide standardized professional assessment of all at-risk schools within 12 months

commit to a 10 – 15 year timeline from today to complete all necessary upgrades

fund school upgrades with federal infrastructure funds as part of Canada’s National Disaster Mitigation strategy and new provincial dollars from outside of the Ministry of Education.
