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.
