Evacuee Registration & Assistance Tool Training

The online Evacuee Registration and Assistance (ERA) tool is live! ERA training is available to Emergency Support Services (ESS) leadership across the province. We use a 'Train-the-Trainer' approach in our sessions, so that leadership can train their own teams. 

How to Register for Training

ERA training registration details are included in Local Authority and First Nation ERA implementation packages. If you are responsible for your local emergency and/or ESS program and did not receive an ERA implementation package, please email the ESS Modernization Project team at essmodernization@gov.bc.ca.  

Important notes for the person responsible for registering participants:

  • Register participants by submitting the 'ERA Training for ESS Leadership Signup Form' (included in ERA Implementation Package).
  • Each session has 24 seats, which will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis
  • For each participant being registered, list two preferences from the list below
  • Registrations must be submitted 5 days before your selected training day
  • Two-hour Sessions are available on Tuesday and Thursdays


Each participant is required to have an active and unique Business BCeID or Basic BCeID before attending a training session. You will receive access to the ERA tool after your training is complete.


‚ÄčTraining is delivered live in a virtual workshop setting using MS Teams. Participants have the option to use MS Teams through their web browser or by downloading the MS Teams app.
