VOLUNTEERS Needed for Emergency Support Services (ESS)

The Towns of Oliver and Osoyoos are looking for volunteers to act as Emergency Support Service (ESS) workers during times of emergency. The volunteers would respond to reception centres to assist with registering evacuees and assisting with group lodging, or may be called out to assist in helping those displaced due to individual residential fire or flood.

Volunteers will be trained under the Provincial Emergency Program. Courses are held in the Oliver/ Osoyoos/Penticton region and will be free of charge to volunteers as space permits.
