Provincial Funding for Emergency Operations Centres Including Fraser Valley

Victoria/Fraser Valley – Local governments and First Nations in 54 communities have been approved to receive their share of more than $1.8 million in provincial emergency preparedness funding to support the work of emergency operations centres.
