Welcome to EPBCC
Vancouver, BC - The Pacific Northwest Preparedness Society and Emergency Preparedness for Industry and Commerce Council (EPICC) came together in 2013 to host a joint conference in order to expand opportunities for, and bring a broader perspective to, the development of emergency management. The conference will continue to cultivate information of specific relevance to the various practitioner groups within the emergency preparedness and business continuity fields.

This year’s joint conference, the Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity Conference will be held at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel on October 30 - November 1, 2018. There will be pre-conference workshops on Monday the 29th.

This is the premier emergency management conference in the Pacific Northwest. It will appeal to practitioners in the areas of emergency management, health, first response, emergency social services and volunteerism, business continuity and academic/technical.

The EPBC Conference Steering Committee ‎strives to put on a cost effective conference for British Columbia covering six program streams for emergency management and business continuity. The Steering Committee works diligently to ensure we deliver a conference program that is relevant to our community. An important goal of the committee is to ensure we provide a cost effective conference for delegates to attend. Over the last few years the Steering Committee has taken a number of cost cutting measures to reduce costs. Incremental costs related to facility rental and food have increased which have resulted in small increases in the registration fees.
