Surrey Emergency Program

Disasters like earthquake, flood or major fire can strike at any time. The Surrey Emergency Program is working to make sure our city is as prepared as possible in the event of these types of emergencies. This public safety program is managed by the Surrey Fire Service and operates under Surrey's Emergency Bylaw.

Emergency Preparedness Toolkits

Make sure you, your family and your business are ready for the first 72 hours after a major emergency happens. Emergencies can occur when you least expect them, but having a plan will save you time and stress. Read and print out your Emergency Preparedness Toolkits to prepare yourself for a major emergency.

C-MIST Emergency Card

In the event of an emergency, this information is to be used by responders to assist individuals with disabilities with their functional and medical needs. People with functional needs may have limitations in a number of areas, such as hearing, seeing, mobility, learning, speech, language and understanding. The functional needs approach to emergency response is a new way of helping people and making sure their needs are met by looking at the five key areas of C-MIST: Communication, Medical Independence, Supervision and Transportation.

Emergency Social Services

Emergency Social Services (ESS) are the services required to preserve the well-being of people affected by an emergency or disaster. The ESS Program is a Provincial Emergency Response Program, but involves various levels of government. The program gives short-term help to people who have to leave their homes because of disasters.

Learn how to get involved in Emergency Services like ESS, Search & Rescue and Amateur Radio.
