Community Emergency Response Programs
The Fraser Valley Regional District’s Community Emergency Programs (CEP) are part of the district's coordinated efforts to ensure all of its communities and rural areas are prepared for and are able to deal with emergency events.
The program educates residents about the importance of being prepared for an emergency and that individuals should plan to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours after an emergency hits.
The Fraser Valley Regional District covers a large geographical area, and is comprised of 7 electoral areas. Each electoral area has different risks and hazards. For emergency planning and response purposes the electoral areas have been categorized into 10 locales, and have been broken down as follows:
- Electoral Area A (Boston Bar, North Bend, Canyon Alpine)
- North half of Electoral Area B (Yale, Dogwood Valley, Spuzzum)
- South half of Electoral Area B (Sunshine Valley, Laidlaw, Othello)
