In the Province of British Columbia regional districts and municipalities are required to plan and respond to emergencies in their area. The CVRD has a Regional Emergency Program that includes nine electoral areas, four municipalities and works collaboratively with eight first nations. Our focus is emergency management and our goal is to lead the communities throughout the Cowichan region to prepare, respond, recoverandmitigate, for emergency or disaster situations.
Public Safety is our Priority
