Overview

Emergency social services personnel help people that’ve been uprooted from their homes during a disaster. Evacuees often face a great deal of uncertainty and need compassion and support from communities. Emergency social services personnel help ensure a community’s response is meeting both the physical and emotional needs of evacuees.

The Emergency Social Services course is recommended for:

  • community staff responsible for emergency social services programs
  • municipal, First Nation and provincial emergency management personnel

The course takes an average of 6 to 8 hours to complete.

After you’ve completed this course, you might also like to take Emergency Social Services Basic offered by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
