Time Piece 1926

As long as there has been a UBC there have been emergency response exercises and drills. One of the earliest was in 1926 when the four-man crew of this tin lizzy fire truck stood ready in front of the library. Apparently uniforms were optional back then. Today, UBC continues to engage in training exercises. On June 19, firefighters, ambulance, police and other campus emergency personnel will take part in a full-scale emergency exercise. The staff will be challenged by multiple incidents happening on campus as the result of a naturally occurring disaster. Props and actors will add to the realism. But don't be alarmed, as the photo shows, we were prepared then and we're prepared now.
