EOC Update: ESS Recruitment Video | Preparedness Information
March 7, 2019 RDOS 

British Columbians forced from their homes by fire, floods, landslides or other emergencies may receive Emergency Support Services (ESS) for up to 72 hours or longer. Most communities have an ESS team that works with the local emergency program during a crisis. The ESS program relies on trained volunteers to meet the needs of people impacted by an emergency.

Volunteering as an ESS responder is an opportunity to help others during a time of crisis. ESS volunteers are trained by the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) and receive WorkSafeBC and liability insurance coverage through Emergency Management BC (EMBC). Training is provided free of charge. Volunteers must undergo a criminal record check.
