Volunteer Opportunities

ESS (Emergency Support Services)

Emergency Support Services (ESS) is a Provincial Government program for local authorities and Indigenous governments to deliver and coordinate essential services to the public during an emergency. ESS is designed to provide short-term, basic support to those impacted by emergencies ranging from a single house fire to larger events, such as wildfire. These supports enable those impacted to re-establish themselves as quickly as possible following an emergency. The ESS program is financed by Emergency Management British Columbia and is administered by the City of Victoria. We depend on volunteers to coordinate and deliver these services.


The City of Victoria is currently recruiting ESS volunteers to continue building capacity within the City’s ESS team, ensuring that we are prepared for all types of emergencies.
