The Emergency Management BC Social Media Unit is actively online Monday to Friday, from 09:00 to 17:00, and afterhours during a Level 2 (partial) or 3 (full-scale) provincial activation. Please note that during a Level 2 or 3 provincial emergency, the Social Media Unit will only provide verified information as it’s received.
