Emergency Social Services

The City of Chilliwack Emergency Program provides Emergency Social Services (ESS) as part of disaster preparedness, response and recovery. ESS is an emergency response program made up of dedicated individuals who share a common goal of assisting people in an emergency. The desire to assist people in a time of disaster motivates many volunteers to make a commitment to ESS.

When an emergency or disaster affects a community, ESS volunteers help provide the essential services necessary to sustain people until the community can return to pre-disaster conditions.

If you are interested in becoming an ESS volunteer please contact the Chilliwack Emergency Program at 604-793-2730 or email to wilson@chilliwack.com
