Emergency Management

Safeguarding the County through Education and Responsiveness

Through its various departments, Lac Ste. Anne County provides a spectrum of services to community and industry stakeholders including emergency and response planning advice and support, public awareness and prevention program support and emergency preparedness planning guidance.

Alberta's Emergency Management Act mandates local authorities to prepare for and respond to disasters that occur within their boundaries, establishing authority for a local emergency management program. A by-law should describe the local structure, authorize the municipal emergency plan and outline any mutual aid arrangements with neighboring local authorities. Once the revised plan is in place, the Emergency Management Team will work with our municipal partners to develop regional response strategies to regional events. A Fire Services and Emergency Preparedness Program grant will help this initiative.


72-hour Emergency Kit

No one knows for sure when disaster will strike, but we can all be prepared. Create your own 72-hour emergency kit, so you will have everything necessary to help you and your family until emergency responders can reach you. Remember, if you have to evacuate, you must be able to carry the plastic container full of supplies. Therefore, you may want to consider two kits – one for sheltering in-place (staying at home), and one in case of evacuation.

If you have time to safely retrieve them, you should also consider other items to take if you evacuate (e.g. family heirlooms, photos, jewelry, computer, phone chargers). You and your family can create a list of items that you really do not want to lose or cannot replace. The list should be taped to the top of your 72 hour kit container, or placed inside it, so you’ll find it easily in an emergency. Be prepared, please, for the sake of both you and your family.
