Pitt Meadows campaigns for more emergency support service volunteers Maple Ridge News [Video]

The City of Pitt Meadows would like a few more of its residents to enroll in its Emergency Support System program.

Tasked with aiding locals in the 72 hours following emergencies like fire, flood, and earthquake, the program provides services like short-term lodging, family reunification, food, clothing, and emotional support.

Currently there are 20 volunteers enlisted. Pitt Meadows’ manager of the emergency program, Barbara Morgan said she would ideally like to double that number.

“What we have currently is good for house fires, but when it comes to a potential catastrophe, we could be cut off from other parts of the Lower Mainland, and would need many people working eight to 12 hour shifts,” she said.
