This action plan responds to a publication released in 2017, "Addressing the new normal: 21st century disaster management in British Columbia," as well as other reports. The plan acknowledges work to date in fire and flood management, and identifies priorities and next steps. Implementing the action plan is expected to take place in alignment with ongoing work, which includes developing new or amended legislation, securing funding approvals, and receiving decisions from other levels of government. The plan's aim is to support the development of comprehensive, integrated disaster management systems in British Columbia in order to reduce disaster risk and increase community resilience over time.The report also identifies a timeline for when next steps should be implemented.
