How to Get Started

It is really quite simple to become a volunteer. Following the five simple steps:
  1. Go to the City of Maple Ridge’s volunteer website.
  2. Login to your account:
    • Returning Volunteer: Welcome back and proceed to login with your previous login information. If you forget your username or password you can reset it on this page as well.
    • New Volunteer: Thank you for joining the team of everyday heroes. Create a new account on the left side.
  3. Complete the online registration process after which you will be contacted by the Emergency Management Office regarding your application.
  4. Maple Ridge's Emergency Management Office will contact you for an interview.
  5. Complete the forms and criminal records check and return to the Emergency Management Office.
All applicants will be contacted by an Emergency Management Office staff person or volunteer for a short interview. You will also be asked to provide references and complete a criminal records check.

We ask that all ESS volunteers take the Introduction to Emergency Support Services training (self study test), participate in simulated exercises and attend a wide variety of core training courses which are offered on a monthly basis. For information on specific positions within the Emergency Programs see Volunteer Job Descriptions.

Please note, the minimum age to volunteer for the Emergency Programs is 18 years old (or 16 with parental consent).

For further information, please call at 604-463-5221 or email Emergency Programs.
