The Prince Rupert Library is the host venue tonight as those behind the Emergency Social Services Program in Prince Rupert prepare to welcome potential new volunteers and those with an interest to the program to their one hour presentation.
As the name of the program suggests, Emergency Support Services (ESS) is a community-based emergency response program designed to preserve the physical, emotional and mental well-being of those affected by an emergency or disaster. ESS provides the temporary (generally up to 72 hours) delivery of resources and services to provide the support needed to help evacuees re-establish themselves as quickly as possible.
The core ability for it to function is through the work of volunteers in the community who lend a hand when called into action.Members of the ESS team are dedicated, enthusiastic, caring and passionate volunteers who are committed to helping community residents in the event of a disaster. ESS volunteers are eager to be involved, support the community and help others in their time of need.
