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 communities' 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 hazard event. 

 

Response

Timely and effective actions taken during an event such as emergency response and using the Emergency Operations Centre if necessary.

 

Recovery

The process of returning to a "normal" state after a disaster has occurred. This would include rebuilding a community.

 

Bruderheim is prepared; staff and community members are trained in emergency management roles and responsibilities. The Town also works closely with industrial and mutual aid partners on emergency and response plan training exercises.

 

 

We are all responsible for our own personal emergency preparedness. Do you know how to:

 

Build your 72 hour preparedness kit?

Prepare for an emergency?

Respond during an emergency?

Take shelter-in-place?
