Working closely with outside agencies and other County of Grande Prairie departments, Disaster Services delivers quality disaster assistance services and training.
Disaster Services works with Alberta Emergency Measures Association (AEMA), Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Fire Services, Family and Community Support Services (FCSS), industry, Enforcement Services, RCMP, and Grande Prairie Regional Emergency Preparedness (GPREP) to prepare contingency, evacuation and communications plans to help protect residents of the County and surrounding areas in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.
A dedicated Emergency Operations Center is located in the County Community Services Building. The operations centre has trained staff and state-of-the-art communications equipment to provide information to the public and the media in the event of an emergency.
