SRD Preparedness Survey Results
For the 2017 Emergency Preparedness Week 997 households throughout the Regional District participated in on-line and physical surveys that asked them 19 questions about what preparedness initiatives their households have taken or engaged in.  Click on the link below to view the results of each community.  The results from this survey will continue to help influence the emergency program's community risk assessment which will result in more efficient public education and outreach campaigns.  How does your household compare to the average?

What is Protective Services?

The Strathcona Regional District provides fire protection services in Electoral Area A (Sayward Valley), Electoral Area B (Cortes Island), and Electoral Area D (between Jubilee Parkway and Oyster River), and is responsible for the region-wide Strathcona Emergency Program.

Protective Services works to support fire safety and emergency management - critical functions of a local government - by coordinating training, education and shared resources. Our goal is to ensure that communities in the region are safer and better prepared in the event of an emergency situation, by helping individuals and organizations become resilient and adaptive.​

We provide:

Leadership to all Emergency Operations Centre, Emergency Social Services and Ground Search and Rescue volunteer and staff teams in our region who will be called upon during an emergency event. 

Coordination of emergency services for the City of Campbell River and four electoral areas while also supporting the Emergency Coordinators in Sayward, Gold River, Tahsis and Zeballos. The Strathcona Emergency Program coordinates regional emergency training, drills and exercises so teams can share skills and better anticipate challenges prior to  an actual event.

Support for preparedness initiatives throughout the Regional District.  Our goal is to build capacity within our region by educating people, neighborhoods and businesses to ensure they are better prepared to help themselves and others impacted by disaster.
