How AEMA Keeps You Safe

Did you know the Goverment of Alberta has a department dedicated to your safety? The Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) works to inform and prepare the public should an emergency take place in your home, office, school, public or just about any place you can be:

The primary objective of the public awareness and education programs and services of the Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) is to create an informed public that knows the steps that should be taken to prevent and respond to a wide range of emergency incidents. These steps are to protect life, property, and the environment, and to promptly notify emergency response services.

Emergency preparedness is everyone’s responsibility. The basic tenet of public awareness and education is to increase their knowledge to enable safe attitudes and behaviours.

Check out what the Province of Alberta is doing to help inform people and keep us all safe by visiting the AEMA website.
