Regional Emergency Management Plan

In 2011, Alberta’s Minister of Municipal Affairs provided a $150,000 grant for the Lacombe County Regional Emergency Partnership for the implementation of a regional emergency response plan, development of a support system, and development and delivery of training to members of the partnership.

The Municipal Affairs grant will allow the Lacombe County Regional Emergency Partnership to enhance its ability to respond to emergencies in a unified, efficient manner. A coordinated effort through preplanning is the most effective way to manage a response.

Emergency Management Alberta is encouraging and supporting a regional response to an emergency, especially as transportation, weather and environmental incidents threaten large areas and are not restricted to political and municipal boundaries. Lacombe County created a customized, functional Emergency Response Plan in 2001 and has worked with its partner municipalities to strengthen their ability to respond to emergencies such as the 1988 floods and the Pine Lake Tornado of 2000.

The Lacombe County Regional Emergency Partnership includes the Towns of Bentley, Blackfalds, Eckville and Lacombe, as well as the Villages of Alix and Clive and the four Summer Villages within the County.
