When a community member needs assistance or an emergency takes place, the Central Saanich Fire Department, Central Saanich Police Service and Emergency Program are there. The district is also home to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, which offers emergency treatment 24/7.
About Our Emergency Program
Our Emergency Program is a division of the Central Saanich Fire Department. We support municipal efforts to prepare for, respond to and recover from major emergencies and disasters.
The Emergency Program:
- Ensures continuity in government.
- Provides a plan for preserving life and property.
- Coordinates response from elected officials, municipal departments, volunteer services and outside agencies.
- In the event of an emergency, our Emergency Operations Centre can notify residents and businesses through our Peninsula Alert System.
