West Panorama Ridge (WPR) Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Plan (NEPP)

Your West Panorama Ridge Ratepayers Association (WPRRA) is leading our community through the process to develop a neighbourhood emergency preparedness plan and establish an Emergency Response Center. If an emergency event occurs, we will be in this together.  We need your help to make sure the plan is comprehensive and that the community is prepared.

What a NEPP is

The WPR Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness Plan identifies risks in our community, defines an action plan to manage these risks if they occur and identifies resources, including community members, who will be involved in supporting our community during an emergency.

Why We Need a NEPP

If an emergency occurs, the City of Surrey will immediately begin working to minimize the effects on our community and to restore services. Through the Surrey Emergency Program, there is a plan in place to address emergencies of all types and sizes.  It is equally important that communities have their own plan in place as residents may need to rely on themselves for the first 72 hours and beyond as the City and emergency responders deal with serious issues elsewhere in the community. To this end, the WPRRA has been working hard on everyone’s behalf.
