Emergency Responce Plan

Emergency Planning & Coordination

Emergencies or disasters can happen anywhere, any time or any place. The Town makes sure plans are in place to help with preparedness, response and recovery.

Emergency Management

High River's Emergency Management team works out of the Town Fire Hall and is a valued part of the Town's Protective Services team. The team works closely with Town divisions, provincial and federal agencies, and other key stakeholders.

The role of High River Emergency Management is to ensure the safety and security of the community and its residents and businesses. The team plans for and coordinates all emergency services and resources required during a major incident.

It is key for families and individuals to learn how to help themselves during the first 72 hours of an emergency in order to best manage the demands on emergency resources during a time of crisis.

For more information, view the Emergency Preparedness webpage.

Four Pillars of Emergency Management

Mitigation, Preparedness. Response and Recovery. Town staff work to ensure plans are in place, which include:

  • Town Emergency Plans - how we monitor, how we prepare, and how we will respond to keep our community safe.
  • Recovery Toolkit - the steps we take after an emergency.
  • Business continuity plans - ways we make sure to provide important services during and after an emergency.
