Meet Ashlene, District of Sooke FireSmart Coordinator
Ashlene joins the District from Emergency Management BC (EMBC), where she was working in the Emergency Support Services (ESS) Division as the Project Coordinator for the new Evacuee Registration and Assistance (ERA) tool, which is an online tool for registering displaced people during an emergency/significant event. She also brings previous experience with the BC Wildfire Service as a Fire Information Officer for various regions within the province to her new role with the District.
We are excited to have Ashlene joining our team and are grateful for the funding of this position through the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) FireSmart Economic Recovery Fund grant.
Ashlene will be developing resources and materials during her term with the District, which concludes June 2022, to support residents and the community to become more FireSmart.
Please join us in welcoming Ashlene to the District of Sooke!
