Mayne Island Emergency Program steps up to help others in an emergency or disaster. The program encompasses planning, preparation and response. Mayne Island has an effective working plan and through training and exercises, as well as public education, continues preparation. The response portion of the program is mostly the function of ESS, the Emergency Support Service.

ESS assists those who have had to leave their homes because of fires, earthquakes, severe weather or other emergency or disaster. Join this vital response team who are guided by a desire to help their community during times of difficulty.

We are looking for caring, resourceful people who are interested in meeting the rewarding challenges of becoming an Emergency Support Services volunteer.

You may work at the disaster site, reception centres or the Community Coordination Centre as part of the Mayne Island Emergency Support Services team and the Southern Gulf Islands Emergency Program.
