Emergency Preparedness


The Town of GibsonsDistrict of Sechelt, and the Sechelt Indian Government District have joined the SCRD to form one integrated emergency program, known as the Sunshine Coast Emergency Program (SCEP). 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.

In 2018, the SCRD undertook a review of its four fire services, as well as a separate review of the existing SCRD Emergency Program. Read the consultants’ final report here: 2018-Dec SCRD Emergency Program Review Final
