About Yukon Protective Services

Yukon Protective Services

We strengthen the territory’s ability to respond to emergencies and coordinate prevention activities. We house emergency management coordination, first response and public safety agencies.

Emergency response is a shared responsibility in Yukon. Protective Services trains volunteers and provides equipment and infrastructure needed to respond safely and effectively.

Protective Services uses a critical incident stress management approach to wellness for employee and volunteers. A "critical incident" is a bad call and responses to it are personal. Employees and volunteers can access 24-hour emergency counseling. Learn more about critical incident stress management.

The division led the successful effort to expand Basic 9-1-1 emergency call service to all Yukon communities to simplify and improve public access to emergency help.
