Our new mayor and council are now trained on what to do during an emergency.
On Monday, Alberta Emergency Management Agency trained the newly elected officials on their role in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery, as well as the importance and use of the Alberta Emergency Alert.
“As a Council we are committed to emergency preparedness,” said Mayor Don Scott, in a release.
“The AEMA training session gave us the opportunity to learn more about our role as elected officials in an emergency. It also highlighted how important it is for our public to be prepared for emergencies. I encourage our residents to take some time and learn more about this important topic.”
Fire Chief Jody Butz says this education and information session will help enforce the importance of emergency preparedness.
“While we often focus on response and recovery, mitigation and preparedness are extremely important. This education and information session with AEMA helped us enforce that idea with our elected officials and we appreciate their commitment to emergency preparedness and public safety.”
The RMWB also offers tips on how to prepare for an emergency, such as a wildfire, power outages, and more.
