Dzawada̱ʼenux̱w First Nation Emergency Management Program


The DFN EMP has been developed and has recruited personnel to its team. Our primary function is providing for the safety and well being of the community of Gwa’yi village. We are tasked to review and update the Emergency Response & Recovery Plans, meet bi-weekly, take Emergency Management & Preparedness Training.

After the September 25, 2010 Great flood, the Administration and Council gave direction that the Emergency Management Program needed to be manned and operational. We have been working diligently under this direction and to date are successfully operational.
