What happens on the North Shore in the event of a major disaster that sees our bridges cut? For one thing, many of the people we need to help us may not be able to get here.

Last Sunday (October 22) the North Shore News carried an article on what happens in the event of an emergency. Among their findings? Nearly half of Lions Gate Hospital employees live of the North Shore. Many essential staff working for North Shore municipalities also live on the other side of the water.

Last spring the Delbrook Community Association called for the DNV Council to consider providing housing options in particular for first responders: paramedics, health care workers, firefighters and police.
