Emergency Preparedness

When a community member needs assistance or an emergency takes place, the Central Saanich Fire Department, Central Saanich Police Service and Emergency Program are there. The district is also home to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, which offers emergency treatment 24/7.

About Our Emergency Program

Our Emergency Program is a division of the Central Saanich Fire Department. We support municipal efforts to prepare for, respond to and recover from major emergencies and disasters.

Operating out of the Central Saanich Fire Department, the District of Central Saanich's Emergency Management Division is responsible for major emergency planning, mitigation, response, and recovery for events such as fires, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, extreme weather, etc. We encourage residents, businesses and organizations to prepare for emergencies. We provide expertise, free materials and resources, volunteer opportunities, emergency preparedness workshops, and an emergency notification system.
