The Juan de Fuca Emergency Program provides comprehensive support, planning and management of emergency response in the Electoral Area through the operation of Emergency Social Services. This program provides assistance to residents who are evacuated during an emergency. In cases where residents are left without power, water or access to amenities during storms, natural disasters or other incidents, provision for food, shelter and clothing needs are provided for up to 72 hours.
The East Sooke Services website has been created to provide information to residents regarding services available in the community. The website is under development, and will benefit from input from East Sooke residents who have learned how and where to find resources for themselves and their families. Please let us know what is missing on our website. It may be of help to your neighbour.
The EMCS Program Office, overseen by the EMCS Society and Sooke School District #62, was established in 1987 when Edward Milne Secondary School became a community school. Since that time, the staff have worked to provide education opportunities for people of all ages in the Sooke Region. We continue to grow and change with the needs of the community, and we hope that you will find programs and services that are both useful and timely.
We welcome your creative input, so please contact us if you have any great ideas for ways we can further serve the community.
