North Shore Emergency Management is a tri-municipal agency that works in partnership with the three North Shore municipalities to plan, coordinate and test emergency and disaster response.
The emergency management office supports municipal and regional North Shore response capabilities by coordinating effective and efficient preparedness, planning, response and recovery activities, and by bringing together resources from the three municipalities, response agencies, public safety lifeline volunteers and other organizations on the North Shore.
Sign up for Alertable
North Shore Emergency Management is now using Alertable to send out alerts for emergencies such as severe weather, natural disasters, industrial hazards, and transportation/marine spills. Sign up and learn more.
Alertable is used by government organizations across Canada for public emergency alerts, ranging from local emergencies, to road incidents, to weather warnings. This differs from the provincial system, Alert Ready, which is reserved for large-scale emergencies and does not require downloading an app.
Disaster Supply Container
An emergency container has been placed near the West Vancouver Community Centre, outside the Ice Arena, to help prepare the community in the event of a major earthquake or other disaster. The container, which looks like a storage pod, is the sixth Disaster Supply Cache to be added to locations throughout the North Shore and contains items to aid responders such as radios, personal protective equipment, generators, and evacuee support supplies.
