 The Town of Didsbury has a plan!

In case of a disaster, the Town of Didsbury has a Director of Emergency Management and two Deputy Directors. The Town participates in a Regional Emergency Management Plan, created and maintained by the Mountain View Regional Disaster Services Committee. As a committee, we meet quarterly to discuss emergency preparedness and are ready to support one another’s communities when called upon.

The Town of Didsbury participates in regular disaster preparedness scenarios and provides training for all Town of Didsbury staff.  In addition to having an Emergency Plan, the Town of Didsbury has a separate Pandemic Preparedness Plan. This plan is put in place to ensure all essential services are maintained when we are faced with severe staff shortages.

If you would like to learn more about the Town of Didsbury’s emergency preparedness plan, call the Town of Didsbury Information line at 403-335-2030 or email inquiries@didsbury.ca

In the event of a disaster such as a tornado, snowstorm or even a train derailment, the Town of Didsbury would like to ensure its residents are equipped with the information they need to make the right decisions.  It is important that Town residents be prepared as well by having food, heat, and shelter for at least 72 hours.
