Emergency Management

PEMO 2018 Logo With comprehensive Emergency Management in mind, the Town of Sidney has established an Emergency Planning Committee to oversee the many activities required for effective emergency management.

This committee focuses on projects such as community risk assessment, emergency exercises, community disaster recovery plans, and much more. 

We work closely with the Peninsula Emergency Measures Organization (PEMO) to ensure Sidney, North Saanich, and Central Saanich have the required emergency services in the event of disaster or major emergency. PEMO provides Emergency Support Services, Emergency Communications, Search and Rescue, and the Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program to the three Saanich Peninsula municipalities.
