OCEAP takes on a number of roles with our community partners in addition to Ground Search and Rescue and Disaster Assistance.
This can include assisting police with road closures or providing extra resources for large scale community events.
In Port Hope, OCEAP volunteers provided assistance at the Float your Fanny down the Ganny, SlideStreet 2015, Candlelight Walk, Santa Claus parade and Cram a Cruiser.
In Cobourg, OCEAP volunteers provide up to four days of assistance at the Waterfront Festival and Canada Day activities and Cops for Cancer.
All volunteers must participate in regular training exercises to ensure they are ready to respond.
