When an emergency or disaster strikes, our local Emergency Support Services (ESS) team members are there to help. Our regional ESS team is made up of local, compassionate volunteers, who want to make a difference when their friends and neighbours need it most.
New volunteers from all of the municipalities, rural areas and First Nations in the region are always welcome. If you want to help in your community and are a compassionate, team-oriented individual, we'd love to hear from you.
Our regional ESS team is managed by the Canadian Red Cross and they train and guide you on how to safely provide vital services to people affected by an emergency or a disaster – large or small. In addition, you'll learn how to provide practical and emotional support to people when they need it most.
What can you expect as an ESS Volunteer?
How To Apply
Contact Simran Sandhu at email@example.com or 250-489-6908. He will share more about the program and connect you with the Red Cross to onboard as a volunteer.
The Regional ESS program is part of the East Kootenay Emergency Management Program Service. We are proud to have partnered with the Canadian Red Cross for the delivery of our local ESS program as we continue to support residents in the region during disasters.
