The City of Prince Rupert is in the business of protecting our community from disasters both big and small. While providing effective Police and Fire Rescue Departments are by far the biggest and most obvious examples of this, the City also coordinates a comprehensive Emergency Management Program which addresses a very wide array of risk prevention and public wellbeing initiatives. These initiatives are designed to coordinated and implement procedures and programs during almost every type of disaster from something as simple as a fire in someone’s home to as major as a Tsunami, Earthquake or Regional Flooding.
Trained professionals and volunteers are prepared to organize support and provide assistance in cooperation and coordination with the Provincial Emergency Program (PEP). Working together these people will help to mitigate the effect of disasters and prevent controllable problems within Prince Rupert.
