Hello Cortes Islanders...

Our next ESS meeting is THURSDAY FEB 15, 6:00-9:30pm at Cortes Island School.

This meeting will be a special training session,
specific to Level 1 response. We are fortunate to have Rick Wall and Dave Scott come to Cortes to share this training. There is no fee, and we are pleased to invite new volunteers to ESS~ with upcoming training, this is a perfect time to join!

Volunteering with ESS~ 1.5 hr meeting a month, access to free training. A way to share your time and energy in a way that truly benefits everyone in the community!

Yes- here on Cortes it is referred to as "support" services, although entire province runs under "social" services.
ESS word change
Comment by Wendy L on 3rd February 2018
At the end of last year it was explained at an SRD Board meeting - the word 'social' has been replaced with 'support'.

ESS = EMERGENCY SUPPORT SERVICES.
