About CVEP

The Comox Valley Emergency Program (CVEP) functions as a partnership between Comox, Courtenay, Cumberland and the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) to provide coordinated emergency programming to the Comox Valley.

These vital programs are responsible for emergency preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery for the Comox Valley and its respective communities.

In addition to government planning for emergencies, it's also essential that we plan – as individuals – for our own safety and disaster recovery.  Comox Valley Regional Emergency Management offers personal, family, business and Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness (NEPP) workshops. NEPP focuses on educating a neighbourhood/community to care for themselves under the concept of 'In it Together'  and can be arranged throughout the year. Contact our office @ 250-334-8890.

The CVRD provides the community with access to emergency fire services and oversees the administration for the Comox Strathcona Regional Hospital District and the North Island 911 Corporation.
