Emergency Management

Nimpo Lake, BC | Tyler Cave Productions

The CCCTA’s emergency management program is here to support local businesses and build resilience in the region’s tourism sector. We provide several services to help our stakeholders build safe, competitive, and resilient businesses that are capable of facing any challenge. We can offer help with:

  • Business continuity planning
  • Data security
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Connecting with and clarification of recovery programs
  • Site response and evacuation planning
  • Health and safety issues
  • Staff training

If you are looking to get started with business continuity planning, enhance your existing plans, or just make your business more resilient, please contact our Emergency Program Coordinator at:

It is important to note that only official up-to-date messaging should be shared in an effort to prevent miscommunication and negative media attention that can happen throughout event coverage.

Plan Ahead

Having an Emergency and Communication Plan in place is a responsible and important business practice. We encourage stakeholders to ensure they are prepared and have Emergency processes in place to communicate accurate information to guests and those travelling across the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast.

Wildfire Safety

Wildfires are a seasonal event in many of British Columbia’s ecosystems. Wildfires can refresh the ecosystem and make way for new growth, but can also pose a potential hazard to people and infrastructure. The British Columbia Wildfire Service manages wildfire response throughout the province and provides information on current wildfire events. To know current wildfires, fire danger ratings, and air quality, visit the BC Wildfire Service website.

Fire Information line: 1-888-336-7378
