Are You Prepared?

In the case of a severe storm or other emergency situation impacting the Sunshine Coast:

- be prepared to look after yourself and your family for a minimum of a 72 hour period.  Have enough food, water and medical supplies, and make contingency plans for the loss of electricity, cellphone and other services

- listen to local radio (i.e. COAST 91.7 FM) for emergency information.  Coast FM is a part of the Sunshine Coast Emergency Preparedness program and is used to broadcast local emergency messaging, even during hours when local programing does not normally air.

Sunshine Coast Emergency Program

The Government of British Columbia maintains an Emergency Information website at which includes emergency preparedness information and a BC Emergency Info News Feed (RSS).

The Sunshine Coast Emergency Program (SCEP) has a full time emergency program coordinator whose responsibility is to plan, mitigate, respond and recover from natural and man-made disasters. As well, the coordinator keeps the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) in a state of readiness and maintains the emergency medical and response supplies.
The Sunshine Coast Regional District authorized under "Sunshine Coast Regional District Emergency Measures Plan and Administration Bylaw No. 564, 2005" provides a comprehensive management program for the entire Sunshine Coast to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters.
