Penticton Emergency Support Services (ESS)

Are you looking to access ESS as an evacuee?

If you have been forced from your home by fire, floods, earthquakes or other emergencies, you may receive Emergency Support Services (ESS) for up to 72 hours, including temporary lodging, food and clothing among other specialized services.  

To receive these services you must register with the Provincial ESS. Registering online through their Evacuee Registration Assistance program page is the most efficient way to register.

For smaller events, ESS services may be provided on site. For larger events, ESS will often have a reception centre established.
