Emergency Support Services

Sooke Emergency Support Services are community volunteers available to assist their neighbors in their time of need. Whether it is one home affected by a fire or flood or an entire neighborhood threatened by a forest fire, ESS volunteers are trained and able to provide aid, comfort and basic needs to residents of the community through those first critical hours of a disaster. As part of Sooke’s Emergency Program, this volunteer group is a division of Sooke Fire Rescue Service.

Monthly meetings are now held in the Council Chamber on the 4th Tuesday of each month @ 7:00 p.m.  No meetings in June, July and August.

For information on becoming a Volunteer ESS member, or for information on how to be better prepared for an emergency situation, contact Deputy Chief Richard McLeod at 250 642-5422 or rmcleod@sooke.ca
