Emergency Social Services Volunteers
When an emergency or disaster happens, our community rises to the challenge. However, only trained and registered volunteers are able to work alongside Emergency Social Services (ESS) staff. Cold Lake and District FCSS recruits local volunteers who are then trained by Alberta Emergency Management Agency to respond to local emergencies and disasters.

Need more help?
