Emergency Management

Red Deer County has an Emergency Management Team, comprised of staff, contracted agencies, Regional and Mutual Aid partners.

Red Deer County has a state of the art Emergency Coordination Center (ECC), which not only serves as a place for the County's emergency management staff to operate effectively in times of crisis, but is also available to other municipalities to utilize. 

Public Events in Red Deer County

For events big and small, it is crucial to share information with First Responders like County Fire, Patrol, and the RCMP to minimize or prevent the loss of life and property. Red Deer County’s Public Events Bylaw helps create a culture of proactive safety and emergency management, and most importantly information sharing.

Part of the Public Event application process is an EAP (Emergency Action Plan), which has three main benefits:
1) Assists in identifying risks or potential risks.
2) Assists in identifying what measures need to be put in place for the protection and well-being of the public who will be attending the Public Event.
3) Identifies individuals/groups/organizations roles and responsibilities.

The bylaw also includes a list of exempted public events which do not require an application fee. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Emergency Management Officer Tina Colberg at 403.348.2036 or tcolberg@rdcounty.ca

If an emergency happens in your community, it may take emergency workers some time to reach you as they respond first to those in greatest need.


For information on getting prepared please visit the Government of Canada website.

Sometimes during a hazardous materials release emergency officials may ask you to evacuate or shelter in place. Do you know how to shelter-in-place? Watch our video guide on sheltering-in-place
