The Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP) is coordinated through our Emergency Management Office, in cooperation with the Corporation of Delta and Delta Fire & Emergency Services and the Delta School District. Information is also available at our Community Police Stations (CoPS). NEPP teaches:
- Individuals and families how to become personally prepared for a minimum of 72 hours following a disaster
- Neighbours how to plan and train as a neighbourhood to respond safely and effectively as organized teams during a disaster.
NEPP can be established in your neighbourhood in Delta. Training sessions are given in:
- Introduction to NEPP – by Delta Police
- Utilities and Fire Suppression – by Delta Fire
- Emergency First Aid – by BC Ambulance Services
- Light Urban Search and Rescue – by Delta Police and Delta Fire
- Communication and Transportation – by Delta Amateur Radio Society (DARS) and Delta Fire
- Shelter and Care Giving – by Delta Emergency Social Services
- Rapid Damage Assessment – by Delta Fire
- Leadership – by Delta Police.
