Following a major fire or flood, emergency assistance may be available.
Emergency Social Services (ESS) is a provincial program that provides emergency assistance for up to 72 hours following house fires, apartment fires, floods and wildfires.
If you are evacuated due to a disaster, please attend a Reception Centre as directed to register and receive services that may be available.
Services may include:
coordination of essential food, clothing and lodging
If you are impacted by such an emergency, meet with ESS personnel to determine the emergency assistance available to you.
Following a major disaster that impacts a large portion of the community, Community Recovery Services may be implemented.
