Emergency Management Information

The Town of Whitecourt has an Emergency Management Plan in place that would be followed if a disaster situation were to occur. The plan outlines how the municipality would work with local emergency service providers, how it would communicate with residents, and how relief efforts would be managed.

Stay Connected

Alberta Emergency Alert and Alberta Wildfire apps are tools that the Town of Whitecourt and Province will use to provide critical information to residents during an emergency. The apps are complementary, and will be used in conjunction with other community tools to inform and engage residents during emergencies.

Residents are encouraged to download the apps to their mobile devices in order to receive alerts. Both apps are free and can be found on the App Store or Google Play. By signing up to receive information directly, users will be better informed about potential risks to their health, safety, and community.

Are you and your family prepared for an emergency?

It is critical that the public be prepared for emergencies in order to handle the challenges that our community may face in the event of an emergency.

  • Every family should have an emergency kit that includes water, food, blankets, medications, a radio, and any other specific family needs.
  • Residents should plan to listen to local radio stations for updates and information during an emergency.
