Today is the last day to check out the Shake Zone at Sparks Street mall!
The Insurance Bureau of Canada has opened its portable earthquake simulator in Ottawa October 17th and 18th.
The setup, called the Shake Zone, simulates a magnitude 8.0 earthquake. You sit inside a truck-mounted cabin as simulated tremors rock the compartment. The IBC hopes that through the Shake Zone it can raise awareness about the importance of preparing for earthquakes.
According to a release from the IBC, the Ottawa – Montreal – Quebec City corridor and southwestern British Columbia are the most susceptible to a large earthquake event. Visit them on sparks today to find out more!
