Emergency Preparedness Week 2016, May 1 - May 7: 72 Hours… Is Your Family Prepared?

Posted on: May 02 2016 - 12:20pm in City Hall Emergency Services

Emergency Preparedness Week (May 1-7, 2016) encourages Canadians to be prepared to cope on their own for at least the first 72 hours of an emergency while rescue workers help those in urgent need. This special week is a national effort of provincial and territorial emergency management organizations, and Public Safety Canada.
By taking a few simple steps, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies – anytime, anywhere. It is important to:

  • Know the risks – Although the consequences of disasters can be similar, knowing the risks specific to our community and our region can help you better prepare.
  • Make a plan – It will help you and your family know what to do.
  • Get an emergency kit – During an emergency, we will all need some basic supplies. We may need to get by without power or tap water. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in an emergency.

Visit Government Canada's Get Prepared website (or your EMO or local website) for more resources to help you and your family prepare for all types of emergencies.

This week, I encourage you to take concrete actions to be better prepared. Please do your part! Experience has shown that individual preparedness goes a long way to help people cope better - both during and after a major disaster. Get an emergency kit now - it can make a world of difference.

New Recycling Program

Posted on: Mar 18 2014 - 10:20am in Public Works

During the week of May 19th, 2014, the City of Terrace will begin collecting recycling materials from all households within city limits that currently receive curbside garbage collection.

Recycling will be collected bi-weekly (every second week) and will not have a bag limit.  Household garbage will also now be collected bi-weekly, will alternate weeks with recycling, and will have a two container limit. Glass will be collected the last Monday of every month. The revised garbage, recycling and composting schedule is attached here

Glass bottles and jars will need to be set out in a rigid container of your choice, such as the one shown here  (http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/orbis-blue-under-desk-legal-recycling-bin-0423070p.html) or here http://www.homedepot.com/p/Argee-2-Gallon-Plastic-Pail-RG502/100184968

A recycling starter package is being delivered to every household the last week of April.
This starter package includes a 30 bag supply of recycling bags, a detailed list of accepted materials as well as a revised collection schedule. Once all the recycling bags in the starter package are used up, households will need to purchase their own translucent plastic bags.

For any questions not addressed online, or in your starter package, please email: pw@terrace.ca or call 250-615-4021.

Thank you in advance for familiarizing your household with this new program, especially the list of accepted/not accepted materials. Your participation will make this new program a success!

Community Services Guide

Posted on: Jan 29 2010 - 12:11pm in

The recent announcement that West Fraser is permanently shutting down its Eurocan operations in Kitimat means that residents in the Kitimat-Terrace Valley will face some challenges as jobs are lost in the region.

The District of Kitimat, City of Terrace and the RuralBC Secretariat, along with many community partners, have been working together to develop a Transition Strategy in response to the announcement.  This strategy is aimed at finding ways to help displaced workers from Eurocan and other businesses affected by the closure.

This Guide was designed to create one source of information for special programs, employment services, community and social services, worker adjustment and retraining opportunities in Terrace and Kitimat.  There is also information about government funding and financial services.

The Kitimat & Terrace Community Services Guide is sponsored by the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Community and Rural Development, Community Development Trust, and by Northern Savings Credit Union through its Community Reinvestment and Corporate Responsibility Initiative.  We gratefully acknowledge this financial support.

We sincerely hope this information will guide you to the experts who can help.  Together, we can move forward to the future.

Measuring up the North: Terrace

Posted on: Jan 01 2010 - 3:54pm in

As part of the Measuring Up the North initiative made up of 41 communities in the North, in 2007 the City of Terrace Council appointed volunteer community members interested in improving Terrace's accessibility for persons with disabilities, seniors and families with small children.  The Measuring Up Terrace Committee fulfilled its mandate and was dissolved by City Council in March 2012.

The City's Measuring Up Terrace Committee received grant funding through 2010 Legacies Now which enabled the Committee to hire a Co-ordinator who worked with the Committee to conduct a Community Assessment and Strategic Plan.  In addition, the funding provided money to undertake some small projects that will help to improve accessibility in the community.

A Community Assessment Survey was distributed throughout the community seeking input on the City's existing level of accessibility, and for suggestions on how to make Terrace more inclusive and accessible.  Responses were collected until July 31, 2008, and results of the survey are posted below:
