Volunteer with the Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program

Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness volunteers with Mayor Gregor Robertson

Are you interested in teaching your community about emergency safety?

The Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP) depends on volunteers to deliver workshops and help neighbours prepare for emergencies and disasters in the city.

The City holds regular emergency safety workshops for residents year-round.

NEPP volunteers hold workshops about preparing for earthquakes and other hazards, including how to: 

  • Prepare for emergencies with your family,children, and pets 
  • Minimize hazards in your home
  • Prepare for emergencies in an apartment
