Emergency Management

The District of Hope Fire Department wants to remind everyone that wildfire prevention and emergency preparedness is a community efforts.  

Some of the considerations for emergency preparedness are

  • Being FireSmart
  • Extreme heat
    • The District is prepared to ensure Hope residents are safe and comfortable in the event of an Extreme Heat Emergency. In the event a cooling center is required, the District will notify its residents via all available communication channels, and utilize the local Recreation Center or Hope Secondary School as their designated cooling centers.  
  • Steps residents can do to prepare themselves
    • In general, have you planned for an emergency? Here are some helpful tips to better prepare yourself:
      • Create a Grab-and-go bag for your whole family. Items to consider include ready-to-eat food and water, phone charger or extra batteries, flashlight, first aid kit, personal toiletries, pen/paper, and a whistle.
      • Make a plan. Can you sustain yourself without power for up to 3 days? Could you safely leave your house at a moment’s notice?
      • Make a list of emergency contact numbers. The list should include at least one out-of-area contact in case local phone and mobile networks are overwhelmed.
      • Do you take medication? Will you have enough for a prolonged period? 
      • What about your pets? Will they have enough food?
  • Community evacuation plan
