About Comox Valley Emergency Management

About  Comox Valley Emergency Management 

The Comox Valley Emergency Management Service is a regional service administered by the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) in partnership with K'ómoks First Nation, Town of Comox, City of Courtenay, and Village of Cumberland to support and coordinate emergency management to the Comox Valley. This regional collaboration and coordinated approach is vital for advance planning, preparedness, mitigation, and addressing 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  Emergency Management regional delivery offers personal, family, business and Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program (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. For more information and to arrange a community briefing, contact our office at 250-334-6000.

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.
