It’s everyone’s business.
We’re prepared. Are you?
You can never schedule an emergency, but you can plan ways to cope with one. The City of Quesnel along with fire, police, other emergency personnel and support agencies have an emergency plan that can be set in motion for large-scale emergencies and disasters. The function of the personnel who are called to work in the Emergency Operation Centre is to respond and restore things back to normal.
This website is designed to assist you in achieving your level of personal preparedness. We have included links to information pages and other websites to help you in your quest.
Remember, personal preparedness is everybody’s business! For questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact the City's Emergency Services Director, Sylvain Gauthier
