The provincial government enacted legislation for regional districts to assume the responsibility of emergency management within electoral areas in 2004. Since that time, much work has been done collectively throughout the Province by local governments to ensure the best possible outcomes if an emergency response is required.
Emergencies can affect part or all of a community. They can happen anytime and anywhere. The Regional District is committed to ensuring those within its borders are educated to the risks and gain the knowledge needed to help themselves during an emergency.
