FNESS – TEAMS program

Preparedness & Response · Remote, British Columbia

The First Nations’ Emergency Services Society (FNESS) has a critical “all hazards coordinated approach” for all First Nation community emergency management (EM) programs across British Columbia (BC).

FNESS Temporary Emergency Assignment Management System (TEAMS) will enhance emergency response and preparedness in BC First Nations by building capacity and providing support, as needed, to communities during emergency events.

First Nation EM program coordinators and staff will be trained in the TEAMS concept and will deploy to assist communities.

FNESS-TEAMS Program Goal
To develop local capacity in First Nation communities through a coaching and mentoring approach providing assistance while at the same time increasing knowledge and skills for future success.
