  • TSBC has shared this message regarding flood preparation:
    “Flooding is a common occurrence in British Columbia. What used to be a seasonal event can now happen at any time across the province. As you will recall from last November, flooding can cause major damage to critical infrastructure, businesses, and homes.
    Because homeowners and technical equipment owners may not know how to prepare for a flood, we’re reaching out to you to ask you to help spread our flood safety tips. As gas industry professionals you play a key support role in your communities prior to and after flooding occurs. Together we can minimize the risks to homeowners and the public.”
