The Shuswap Emergency Program (SEP) will be holding an open house on Friday, Nov. 23 at the Mall at Piccadilly from 4 to 7 p.m. with the goal of attracting volunteers.
The open house will include a mock live setup of an Emergency Operation Centre (EOC) so the public can get an idea of what it is like behind the scenes when SEP goes into action.
“We have a strong team of volunteers but after dealing with the long-lasting flooding emergencies this spring, we realize we can always use more assistance to help out in these situations,” says Shuswap Emergency Coordinator Cliff Doherty.
Anyone interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities is invited to attend the open house, which will be held across from the Salmon Arm Public Library. Anyone who is not able to attend the open house but is interested in volunteering may call the Shuswap Emergency Program at 250-833-5927 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
