Emergency workshop

Emergency Management BC will be hosting workshops in the coming months aimed

Emergency Management BC will be hosting workshops in the coming months aimed at helping develop emergency management knowledge among elected officials.

In a letter the Village of Port Alice received at their meeting on March 25, council was invited to take part and advise how many members would be attending.

Areas the workshops will cover include roles and responsibilities, importance of initiating recovery plans early on, mitigation, and preparedness during disaster situations.

The workshops will also touch on the Emergency Program Act, the Provincial Coordination Team, and Initial Response Plan.

The workshop date that was selected from the list of 20 that are being offered was May 22, and will tentatively include attendance by council members Dave Stewart, Doug Worthington, Christine Martin and Mayor Jan Allen.

“When elected officials take office, they assume certain responsibilities, so the better educated about EMBC (Emergency Management British Columbia) which is the provincial partnering organization, the better prepared we are,” said Port Alice’s CAO Madeline McDonald.
