Emergency Management

What is Emergency Management?

Emergency Management is the ongoing process of planning and allocating resources to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. A disaster is an emergency that exceeds the community's resources.

There are four phases of Emergency Management

  • Prevention - actions taken to prevent or mitigate the impact of disasters (reduce risk).
  • Preparedness - measures taken by individuals and communities to prepare for the occurrence of a hazardous event.
  • Response - timely and effective actions taken during an event such as emergency response and using the SCAR Notification System if necessary.
  • Recovery - the process of returning to a "normal" state after a disaster has occurred. This would include rebuilding a community.

The Municipal District of Taber is prepared; staff and community members are trained in emergency management roles and responsibilities and relationships are continually being fostered with community groups. MD of Taber also works closely with industrial and mutual aid partners on emergency and response plan training exercises.
