The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD), through the Sunshine Coast Emergency Program (SCEP), is the lead agency for emergency management on the Sunshine Coast.
SCEP are not emergency responders. In an emergency, please call 9-1-1.
How does it work?
Municipal and regional district staff along with volunteers, first responders, first nations and non-government agencies plan, train and exercise together to be ready for the next large-scale emergency or disaster.
When required, an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will be activated by the SCRD to support an emergency or disaster. Emergencies are managed by following the four phases of emergency management; mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.
An EOC is responsible for various duties such as declaring a state of local emergency, coordinating multiple agencies, providing media releases and managing evacuees.
For information about the Emergency Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-885-6887.
Provide the basic assistance that people need when they have been impacted by an emergency or disaster.
This plan provides guidance to respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters on the Sunshine Coast.
HRVA helps communities make risk-based choices to address vulnerabilities, mitigate hazards and prepare for hazard events.
