Emergency Communications

In times of crisis, the rapid spread of misinformation can be detrimental. At such critical junctures, a trustworthy and validated source of information becomes paramount. The Seabird Communications Program stands as a beacon of reliability during emergencies, thanks to our dedicated and certified Emergency Information Officer operating from our Emergency Operation Center (EOC). We collaborate closely with the Seabird Emergency Preparedness Committee and the Kent Harrison Joint Emergency Preparedness Committee to ensure that our community receives the most accurate, up-to-date, and timely information.

Our commitment to keeping the public well-informed extends to all phases of an emergency event—before, during, and after. We craft precise key messages and media releases to effectively communicate with the public, media outlets, and internal stakeholders. Utilizing a range of communication mediums, we disseminate essential information and educational resources to empower our community.

Our scope covers various emergency scenarios, including but not limited to winter storms, wildfires, heatwaves, atmospheric rivers, earthquakes, pandemics, floods, land slides, and more. Trust Seabird Communications to be your reliable source during times of uncertainty.
