Are you ready?
Earthquakes, floods and fires are some of the potential emergency hazards in British Columbia.
What will you do if services are disrupted and roads are closed?
Having an emergency plan is like insurance- if you have one you will be prepared to cope.
Emergency Preparedness Week is an opportunity to highlight our ability to support BCers in times of crisis.
For 125 years, Emergency Disaster Services has been on scene whenever there has been a natural or man made disaster. Fourteen Salvation Army Community Response Units in BC respond to requests from fire, police, search and rescue and other agencies during provincial emergencies. Our assistance is long term, through the critical disaster phase and well after the tragedy; rebuilding communities, families and lives.
