Public safety and the well-being of citizens is a crucial function of local government.
The CSRD is responsible for the direction and control of coordinated response to and recovery from a major emergency event or disaster. This is accomplished by maintaining effective emergency management organizations, with trained and practiced personnel and community volunteers, as well as maintaining up-to-date emergency plans.
The CSRD's Emergency Programs do not coordinate or facilitate the day-to-day emergency response activities of the RCMP, Fire Departments or BC Ambulance Service. The programs are designed to assist these agencies with the necessary resources required for an incident once they have exhausted their own. This may be in the form of special equipment, or supplying extraordinary resources to a larger emergency effort.
