New Funding for Emergency Preparedness

UBCM will be administering a new funding program to enhance the resiliency of local governments and their residents in responding to emergencies. The Community Emergency Preparedness Fund was announced as part of an $80 million announcement from the Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure. 

The Community Emergency Preparedness Fund will be supported by a $32 million contribution and will include funding for:

  • Emergency operations centres and training
  • Emergency social services
  • Evacuation route planning
  • Flood risk assessment, flood plain mapping and flood mitigation plans
  • Structural mitigation

UBCM will be working with the Province in the coming weeks to design each funding stream and develop program materials.
