Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy.
— Max Mayfield

There are various agencies and methods of training and learning about emergency preparedness available.

Listed below are a few of  the organizations and businesses that offer training in this area. Some are broad based and others offer specific training (ie, the Kaslo Volunteer Fire Department trains our volunteer fire fighters in Kaslo and the First Responders in Kaslo and Area D). More will be added as they are sourced, and opportunities for training and education will also be posted on the "EP news" page blog.
