The hazards most likely to be encountered in inhabited parts of the UEL are earthquakes and wildland-urban interface fires.
Metro Vancouver has the legislated mandate to protect the safety and well-being of all Electoral Area A residents through preparation and planning for various types of emergencies. Inhabited parts of the University Endowment Lands (UEL) are covered by Metro Vancouver’s Electoral Area A Emergency Management Plan. In addition, the UEL has a Water Emergency Response Plan and is responsible for maintaining and repairing critical UEL infrastructure (distinct from Metro Vancouver’s water infrastructure and other utilities) in the event of an emergency.
