inclusion Powell River Shakes It Out!

As in previous years, inclusion Powell River participated in the Great BC Shake Out! At inclusion, monthly emergency drills are the norm, but during the Great BC Shake Out we get photos of our staff helping clients to the safer areas or, in some cases, staff will shield clients from any falling debris. Such commitment and caring, as always from our staff. Great job and thank you.
