The Cariboo Regional District offers several emergency services, including 9-1-1 service, fire protection and search and rescue, all of which provide direct assistance to residents. The Regional District also works in cooperation with Emergency Management BC (EMBC). The CRD also supports a region wide Emergency Social Services (ESS) program. This service is provided by a group of dedicated volunteers that assist in evacuations, usually in evacuee reception centres.

Emergency Operations Centre

The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) is activated during emergencies. Use this page as a resource during an event that requires EOC activation.

Emergency Preparedness

Getting prepared for an emergency is essential to your family's well being. Conducting fire drills, managing hazardous material properly and having a first aid and emergency kit are some of the actions that will help you in the event of an emergency.

House Numbering Program

Visible, standardized signs make it easier for emergency responders to find a home or business address quickly in the event of an emergency. Often, emergency responders are travelling to remote locations with address signage that is barely legible, if there is a sign at all, and minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Register for a house number and purchase an address sign today.

Volunteer Fire Departments

The Cariboo Regional District currently administers 14 volunteer fire departments.

Search and Rescue

The CRD currently administers one Search and Rescure Department. The Central Cariboo Search and Rescue members provide assistance to RCMP and BC Ambulance Services.
