Emergency Social Services Support

POSTED: 1:04pm, August 31, 2017

As the wildfire season develops through August and into September, there will be a continuing need for Emergency Social Service Support across the Province of British Columbia. To support affected communities, the Provincial Emergency Coordination Centre continues to coordinate deployments for interested ESS volunteers across the regions. These deployments are a great opportunity to develop real world experience – every volunteer will bring a wealth of knowledge back to their home community.

Once a volunteer has submitted their name, they are put on a list and will be called when a need is identified for them. If you have already submitted a volunteer name for deployment no need to resubmit. 

Attached is a set of checklists that should be reviewed by anyone considering a deployment. These checklists will help the volunteer prepare as well as let them know what to do and who to call while on task. Please print the package/checklists to bring with you.

If you are interested in assisting, please complete the form and submit to pecc.ops30@gov.bc.ca
