The Municipality of Jasper is looking for volunteers to assist people in the case of an emergency. Volunteers receive regular Emergency Social Services (ESS) training; become part of the ESS response, helping people in times of disaster; and have an important role to play in the ESS plan. The Municipality's ESS volunteers are Jasperites who have committed to assisting residents and visitors in the case of a local emergency.Link to page
