Prevention, Education and Preparedness
Dalmeny Emergency Measures Organization ( EMO)
When an emergency arises in our community we have a group of well trained professionals that responds to our daily emergencies. However should a disaster arise in our community, a large range of agencies must pull together to provide a coordinated response!
In Saskatchewan, in addition to natural disasters there are many other risks, such as power outages, blizzards, wind storms, plane crashes or major transportation accidents. The Saskatchewan Department of Corrections and Public Safety is the lead agency for the province on public safety and security. It works closely with local authorities, as well as the federal and other provincial and territorial governments, to share information and develop emergency plans and strategies to ensure the safety and security of our communities.
Are you Prepared?
Do you have an emergency kit in your home?
Does your business have an emergency plan in case of a power outage?
It is everyone’s responsibility to be prepared for unforeseen disaster which can happen at any time!
