Flood Emergency Management

In British Columbia, lives, homes, businesses, property, and infrastructure may be threatened by floods.  Whether flooding occurs from sudden, unpredictable heavy storm events or slowly developing events due to run-off from melting snow, being prepared to respond is critical.

Emergency Management BC (EMBC) has the primary responsibility for coordinating flood response.

To report a FLOOD EMERGENCY in British Columbia, please contact EMBC Coordination Centre at 1-800-663-3456.
