Emergency Planning

The Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District (SQCRD) Emergency Program provides the direction and coordination required to respond and recover from major emergencies or disasters in the electoral areas of the SQCRD. The SQCRD program is in place to assist incident commanders when emergencies exceed their response capabilities, training or available resources.

The SQCRD Emergency Program functions on a 24 hour/7 days per week basis. During business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., information on the program can be obtained by calling (250) 624-2002 or toll free in B.C. at 1-888-301-2002. 

Emergency Notification System for Haida Gwaii

In the event of an emergency, sharing up to date, accurate information is essential for the health and safety of ourselves, our families and our communities.

ePACT is an online emergency network that our communities will use to send out alerts and news updates by telephone, text or email messages to registered contacts in affected communities. ePACT is designed to provide residents with the information and updates you need as quickly as possible so that we can better respond to emergencies- as soon as the local authorities know about it, you know about it.

ePACT is free for families and residents to use. The municipalities you live in pay to use the system so they can better communicate with you in a crisis. This is an island-wide, joint community venture.
