The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) Emergency Program Coordinator (EPC) receives direct notification from Emergency Management BC (EMBC) through the automated Provincial Emergency Notification System (PENS) when an impending emergency such as a tsunami occurs. If the SCRD is determined to be at high risk, EMBC will initiate a direct call to the EPC.

If a course of action is determined to be warranted, a notification is sent to all first responders, medical and Emergency Operations Centre staff through an automated notification system using text, email and phone.

Relevant information such as precautionary measures, evacuation alerts and orders, and reception centre locations will be shared with the public through the SCRD website, on Twitter and Facebook and the local radio station.
