Emergency Management

Farm Emergency Plan - Fillable (002)-1

Farm Emergency plan

The Farm Emergency Plan template lets farmers, producers and landowners create their own emergency plan to keep their family members, employees, contractors or visitors safe in the case of an emergency or disaster situation. The template contains many references to livestock, but can be adapted for any farming operation to mitigate the hazards to buildings, people or commodities. County Emergency Management staff are available to guide or assist in completing the plan if needed. This plan is personal to each farm operation, so producers can make it fit their own needs.

Is your family prepared? 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, evacuation or shelter in place, please visit the Government of Canada website. Do you know how to shelter-in-place? Watch our video guide on sheltering-in-place


Emergency Logistics Canada

Red Deer County is incorporating EMLCanada.ca in how we manage logistics activities in preparation for and response during disasters and emergency activations.

Red Deer County businesses can activate a LOCAL business listing with NO ANNUAL FEES on the platform to help Red Deer County maintain an updated version of our Emergency Logistics Vendor List. Membership is not mandatory, and is not required to remain a vendor in Red Deer County's Emergency Plan, but it is strongly encouraged as a way of consolidating as many resources as possible into one virtual platform.
