The District of Mission’s Emergency Program closely follows the concepts of emergency prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. This important work is actively supported by District staff, community volunteers and elected officials who all recognize the need to mitigate against potential losses to life, property and the environment.
The District of Mission has a strong commitment to preparing its citizens in the event of an emergency within the community and has taken several steps forward to assist with planning and preparing in the event of an emergency.
The District has an Emergency Planning Committee which consists of a emergency planning coordinator, municipal staff and agencies such at BC Ambulance, Search & Rescue, RCMP, Mission Emergency Support Services etc. Meetings are held once per month at Mission Fire Station No. 1. This Committee plans and prepares in the event an emergency situation occurs in Mission.
In addition, the District supports a part-time Coordinator of Emergency Support Services and several volunteers who are called upon to assist community members during emergency situations. Such events as fire and flooding victims have been assisted by this organization. The District has a Emergency Social Service office located at 33330 – 7th Avenue Mission, BC.
