The British Columbia Association of Emergency Managers was started in 2006 as a grassroots organization by a group of regional district Emergency Managers who recognized the need to support each other and share best practices. In 2007 this idea was formalized when BCAEM became a BC Society.

“The British Columbia Association of Emergency Managers supports its diverse membership in their efforts to enhance emergency management initiatives in British Columbia.
