Biography picture of Marlo Pritchard, SPSA President

Welcome to the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) website. Our website offers a snapshot of the agency, and includes links to the programs, services and initiatives we provide or support that help to safeguard and protect Saskatchewan's people, property and resources.

The SPSA is responsible for provincial emergency management, fire safety, wildfire management and managing Saskatchewan's 911 emergency services. While the SPSA has many public safety responsibilities, we cannot do it alone. The agency has many public and private sector partners who contribute to improving public safety and are active in provincial activities.

As an agency, we are committed to delivering quality programs and services that ensure Saskatchewan's overall preparedness and ability to respond to any threat or in times of crisis in collaboration with first responders, local governments, Indigenous communities and industry. We encourage any feedback you may have to improve and serve you better.

Thank you.
