Prepare yourself

The City is prepared

The City of Quesnel, fire, police, other emergency personnel and support agencies have an emergency plan that can be set in motion for large-scale emergencies and disasters. The City opens its Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) when an emergency occurs. The EOC activation levels range from one (small event or threat) to three (major event). Trained staff work in the EOC to respond to an emergency.
