The Municipal Emergency Coordinator (MEC) is responsible for coordinating and supporting emergency preparedness and response in the Municipality by implementing the provincial emergency program to ensure the safety of citizens, their property and the environment.
 
The MEC's emergency preparedness activities include training, education, disaster exercises, providing public information, updating the emergency response plan annually and response and mitigation to an emergency incident. Some of the most common emergencies in our municipality are high water events including overland flooding, blizzards, thunderstorms and tornados. 

Staff are always ready to respond when necessary to assess and deal with the situation at hand.
 
Our Emergency Preparedness webpage has some great information on protecting yourself, your family and property as well as information on preparedness and safety.
