Emergency Preparedness

If there is an extreme fire hazard, or other emergency in Alberta are you prepared?

Actions for You

1. Be aware and abide by the fire bans within the village. Please check the albertafirebans.ca website to see the status of fire bans within the village and neighbouring areas. 

2. Have a 72-Hour Emergency Kit. Have a 72-hour emergency kit prepared in case it is needed. Information on what should be included in your emergency kit is located on our website under Emergency Preparedness > Build Yourself a 72-Hour Emergency Kit, or by clicking here.

3. Have a plan and location to evacuate to if needed. We hope that an evacuation is never required. But if it is, have a plan and location prepared to quickly evacuate. Consider what your family will need to do if evacuated.

4. Please check out alberta.ca/build-an-emergency-kit to ensure your preparedness.
