Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to enhance public safety of Town residents by preparing for, responding to, and recovering from large-scale emergencies and disasters. We do this through a continuous cycle of building hazard-specific plans; training of staff and volunteers; testing the plans via exercises and making changes to the hazard plans as required.
Our Emergency Services Team
The Town of Coaldale’s Emergency Management team is committed to working diligently with numerous groups to provide public safety to Town residents. The team collaborates with the various Town departments, governmental, and non-governmental organizations(NGOs) to ensure we are prepared for large scale emergencies and disasters. These departments & organizations include the Red Cross, Town volunteers, Town businesses, church groups, the RCMP, Coaldale Fire, schools, medical facilities, lodges, the Government of Alberta, the City of Lethbridge, and Lethbridge County. Our goal is to be well-prepared so we can respond effectively and recover quickly from emergency incidents.
Hazard Impact Risk Assessment
The Town recently completed a Hazard Impact Risk Assessment and we are now in the process of creating an all-hazards plan for the town. Once completed, we’ll continue to provide skill and knowledge training to Town staff and volunteers, complete training exercises and re-evaluate and improve our emergency plans.
