WTCI’s Emergency Management Coordinator will enhance member communities’ abilities to respond to emergency events and crisis response which impacts the health and infrastructure of individual communities. This includes but not limited to natural hazards, severe weather events, threat risk and vulnerability assessments as well as community risk assessments, psychosocial responsiveness and first responder training. Specific outcomes are as follows:

  • Maintained, up to date, and practised all EPPs.
  • Listing of all partners in EPP for each member community.
  • List of stakeholders for every section of member communities EPP work plan.
  • Detailed meeting reports (agenda’s minutes).
  • Plans/progress reports for EPP plan development/updating.
  • Community contact list that describes how to reach community EPP staff (including health staff) in case of an emergency.
  • Summary of outstanding issues related to EPP in each community for emergencies/outbreaks.
  • Assessment/evaluation of community preparedness in emergency scenarios.
  • Needs assessment of community in terms of readiness of response capability.
  • Federal and Provincial agreements concerning roles and responsibilities in crisis events.
  • Agreements of understanding between government crisis response departments/organizations and member First Nations.
  • Training for emergency preparedness.

I look forward working with our communities!

Emergency Management Review and Needs Assessment – Phase 1

Below is the Phase 1 document from Scout 5 Consulting.  There will be four phases in this process.  The information in this first document isn’t location specific and can be regarded as a “global” look into Emergency Management with the eventual goal to create an Emergency Plan for your community. Please contact Don Stenger, EMC for WTCI if you have any questions.

Wolastoqey Emergency Alert Management System sign-up

What is the issue?
Currently, most communities rely on social media platforms to send information to community members which works but relies on all or most being online at that time.  Sentinel allows authorized people (Chief and EM Coordinators) the option to send alert messages over landlines, email, cell phone, or usually preferred text messages depending on the severity of the alert.

Why is this an issue?
The Chiefs currently do not have the ability to pass along information to the community residents instantly and rely on community members passing or sharing information.  There is also the threat of messages being misread or misinterpreted by others who are trying to pass on good information.
