PRINCE GEORGE-  Emergency Support Services Responders are the people that provide support for residents directly impacted by natural disasters and emergencies like flood, fire, and earthquakes. In the event of an emergency, responders will connect displaced residents with support services and things like food, clothing, and shelter. This weekend a training conference is being held in the city that will ensure those responders are up to date on training and organized to keep people in the north safe. Participants will take part in workshops by CNC, Northern Health, and a session that focuses on key learnings from 2018 wildfire season. The event is co-hosted by the City of Prince George and the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George and presented in partnership with Peace River Regional District, Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako, Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, Village of Telkwa, Town of Smithers, City of Terrace, District of Taylor, City of Fort St John, and District of New Hazelton. This is the 7th annual Northern Emergency Support Services Training Conference and organizers say it's exciting to see attendance has doubled since last year with more than 200 attendees.
