Port Metro Vancouver Chemical Fire

Posted 6:30 PM, March 4, 2015

The City of Burnaby has just participated in a City of Vancouver Emergency Operations Centre-hosted conference call with Vancouver Coastal Health and key representatives from all involved emergency agencies. The key message coming out of this call is that an “all clear” has been issued regarding this incident. As a result, the City of Burnaby has now deactivated its Emergency Operations Centre.

The City will, however, carry on with overnight monitoring for air quality. The City also continues to recommend that anyone who smells smoke within the next 12-hour period to keep doors and windows closed, or if outside, to cover their mouth and nose with a wet cloth.

If additional updates are required, they will be issued on this website and via the City of Burnaby Twitter account – and/or by agencies in the region and via the media.

Seniors (55+) Centres

55+ 

Spanish explorer Ponce de León may or may not have found a literal fountain of youth, but modern researchers and a generation of active adults have certainly discovered one for themselves. The real secret to longevity and quality of life?

Staying fit and being active.

To build community and promote good health in our aging population, Burnaby is home to four 55+ Centres. Two are located within recreation centres and the other two are stand alone. Social, educational and recreational hubs for citizens of a “certain age” (55 is the new 35, some say!), these centres are great spots to meet new friends, take dance and art classes, karaoke, sample great food during restaurant outings, and generally have a blast with a fascinating and friendly mix of people. As for staying active, see if anyone can keep up while you join in on exercise classes, table tennis, snooker, bridge, hiking, badminton, shuffleboard, Nintendo Wii, Tai Chi or chess.
