SEPP - Seniors Emergency Preparedness Program

The Seniors Emergency Preparedness Program has ended but this page will continue to provide good information to help you prepare for extreme weather events, power outages and wildfires.

The Seniors Emergency Preparedness Program (SEPP) was a pilot program that helped to confirm a network of community organizations, contractors and volunteers that are available to support vulnerable seniors during extreme weather events.

Please feel free to contact seppquadracircle@gmail.com and we will try to help you to feel more secure during extreme weather.  Or phone the Quadra Circle office at 285-2255.
