In the event of an emergency, please dial 911 for assistance.
Now is the best time to prepare yourself and your family for an emergency. Despite the best efforts of rescue personnel, it is your responsibility to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours.
In times of emergency, our service providers must contend with overwhelming requests for aid. All that you can do to help relieve the burden on our dedicated rescue personnel is greatly appreciated.
The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) has information on cold and hot weather safety, winter driving, preparing a car kit, floods, power outages, evacuations, and other useful links.
