Emergency Management Program
The mission of the program: to create and maintain a cooperative organization to manage risks from major emergencies and disasters that may affect the City of Nanaimo.
The two-part mission statement has been adopted to guide emergency management actions in the City of Nanaimo. The term "emergency management" reflects the intent to continuously examine actions that might help reduce the likelihood and impact of major emergencies and disasters. These actions include:
- understanding the risks
- taking all reasonable steps to reduce the threat
- planning for both response and recovery
- ensuring site support teams and community residents are prepared to act when needed
- continually evaluating and improving the program
Emergency Preparedness Week was May 6-12, 2012. By taking an active role in your community, you are helping to build a culture of preparedness in Canada. While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe, everyone has a role to play in being prepared for an emergency.
Public Safety Canada publishes a wide variety of products aimed at helping citizens know the risks and get prepared for emergencies. The publications can be downloaded and printed.
