Abstract
The Emergency Program Act of British Columbia requires all local authorities (Municipalities and Regional Districts) to develop emergency plans for their jurisdiction. The Local Authority Emergency Management Regulation, enabled by the Act, requires that those local authority emergency plans, “establish procedures by which those persons who may be harmed or suffer loss are notified of an emergency or impending disaster.” There is not one right solution or strategy for emergency notification that works in all communities equally. The unique features of each community require unique solutions.
