Emergency Management Victoria is the City of Victoria’s resource for emergency preparedness. The City has a comprehensive plan and skilled team in place to respond to emergencies quickly and effectively in order to put the people and places in Victoria on the path to recovery as quickly as possible.
We invite residents and businesses to rethink what it means to be emergency prepared. The good news is you’re actually more prepared than you think. Disaster-resilient communities are made up of people who practise ‘everyday readiness’ such as knowing your neighbours, making sure your cell phone is always charged, and buying a few extra tins of food each time you’re at the store. Together we are ready.
In the event of an emergency, for updates follow the City of Victoria on Twitter and Facebook, and follow EmergencyInfo BC on Twitter. Learn more.

Do you have your kit together? Having essential supplies handy in an emergency is a vital part of preparedness. A home kit enables survival for a minimum of seven days.
This week's video focuses on preparing an emergency kit for your workplace. Emergencies can happen at any time, anywhere. Having a well-stocked emergency kit at work is helpful in the event an emergency occurs while on the job. Check out this week's "Work" emergency kit video.
