The First Nations Toolkit (PDF, 2.29MB) is an Emergency Management BC resource and information package that has been developed to provide First Nations communities with resources and information about emergency management support available at the community level. This package is not intended to replace a community emergency plan; it is designed to support a community by presenting additional considerations during the response to an emergency incident.

If you have additional questions or concerns that are not addressed within this package, please feel free to reach out to your regional office for support. Contact information is located within the toolkit.
