This family-friendly community event hosted by the Strathcona Regional District (SRD) will showcase the expertise of local emergency volunteer programs and also help to build your awareness and resiliency around family emergency preparedness. The following organizations will have a booth at the event:
• Canadian Animal Disaster Response Team
• Canadian Red Cross
• Emergency Communications

• Family Disaster Preparedness
• St. John Ambulance Brigade
“Volunteers have various skills and resources that can be offered during a disaster and when planned for, can make an invaluable impact by increasing response capacity” said Shaun Koopman, SRD’s Protective Services Coordinator. “Whether you would like to give back to your community during times of crisis or interested in pursuing a career in a field of emergency response such as armed forces, RCMP, fire or health, the skills learned in these volunteer programs provide valuable professional development and mentorship. If you are interested in deploying, training, administration, or even assisting behind-the-scenes on your own time, there is a role for you.”
