PRRD Receives Provincial Funding – Community Emergency Preparedness Fund Disaster Risk Reduction

The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) is pleased to share that they are the recipient of an $80,000 grant from the provincial Community Emergency Preparedness Fund under the Disaster Risk Reduction – Climate Adaptation Stream.  Back in February, 2023, the Regional Board endorsed the recommendation from the Emergency Executive Committee to apply for the funding, to allow the PRRD to contract an environmental engineering company to research, prepare and facilitate  a geohazards workshop for staff and the Regional Board. The funding will be used to inform the Regional Board and their staff the importance of geohazard risk identification and risk reduction, to better position them to make informed decision on land use and emergency management planning in the region.
