Emergency Management

Emergency Management BC (EMBC) is the province's lead coordinating agency for all emergency management activities, including planning, training, testing and exercising.

Volunteers

Public Safety Lifeline Volunteers are at the heart of emergency response in British Columbia.

Response & Recovery

Emergencies are managed first at the local level. However, if the situation escalates, the provincial emergency management structure is activated. Following the response phase of an emergency, the Government of British Columbia will then work to support communities on their road to recovery.

Fire Prevention, Safety & Reporting

The Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC) provides advice, guidance and support to members of the British Columbia fire service.
