How to become an ESS volunteer?
Your local authority is responsible for developing a plan for provision of Emergency Social Services in the event of a disaster. To offer your services as an ESS volunteer, contact your municipal or regional district office and ask to be put in contact with the ESS Director or the Emergency Program Coordinator for your community.
If there is no one currently filling either of these roles, you may wish to consult with either your regional EMBC Office or the ESS Office for suggestions and support in establishing an ESS team in your community.
