As part of the City of Kingston’s Emergency Response Plan, United Way of KFL&A is seeking volunteers to assist in the event of an emergency.

The Emergency Management Plan is managed by staff from Kingston Fire & Rescue.  If selected as a volunteer, the Community Emergency Management Coordinator  will work with you as follows:

  • In reception centres to support registration and identification of displaced persons
  • In non-hazardous areas to support emergency workers
  • Assisting the City’s social services staff in the provision of emergency social services, food, clothing, lodging and other social service supports
