Disaster Prevention and Preparedness

Disasters such as flooding or severe summer and winter weather can have devastating and long-term consequences.

The first point of contact in any emergency is always your local municipal government.

They will make the decision to ask for provincial support if the event is beyond local capacity.

Emergencies can occur at any time. In an emergency, response agencies focus their efforts first where the need is greatest. That is why individual emergency preparedness is so important.

It only takes four simple steps to become better prepared to face an emergency:

  • know the risks
  • make a plan
  • get or prepare an emergency kit
  • download SaskAlert to receive alerts of emergencies happening in your location

Municipal disaster prevention and preparedness

Municipalities are encouraged to share the information in this section with their residents so they can be better prepared. However, community leaders and officials should visit Municipalities: Disaster Prevention and Preparedness for information officials can refer to when considering disaster mitigation, prevention and preparedness for their community.
