qRD will also provide grant management for the project if funds are received

At the March 22 qathet Regional District (qRD) board meeting, directors endorsed an application to Union of British Columbia Municipalities for the emergency operations centres and training funding stream of the community emergency preparedness fund.

The regional district will also provide grant management for the project if the funds are received.

According to a staff report, since 2018, qRD has successfully accessed this grant funding on four occasions, to support the purchase and installation of a backup generator for the community services office at McCausland Road, and to support emergency operations centre staff and partner agencies’ training sessions and exercises, as well as public education.
