Emergency Management

In BC, local authorities are responsible for responding to emergencies within their jurisdictions. Local emergency programs are not “first” responders, however. Police, fire, and ambulance are responsible for immediate life safety issues.

Local emergency programs, like the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Emergency Program, and its counterparts in Whistler, Pemberton, and Squamish, are there to look after people during events that are outside of the day-to-day. Local emergency programs support first responders, and respond to large-scale events like floods, interface fires, and earthquakes – all with a view to helping the community as a whole cope with impacts and recover quickly.
