Welcome to City of Swift Current Emergency ManagementSC_emergencymanagement

The City of Swift Current takes the safety and well-being of its residents and visitors very seriously.  Although the coordination of emergency response efforts rests within the Fire Department, every municipal department has a role to play in responding to and mitigating major emergencies.  However, each member of our community must take responsibility for their own protection and the protection of their families and property.  To this end, we recommend that all citizens have sufficient supplies of the necessities of life to survive on their own for a period of 72 hours.

We have developed a very comprehensive emergency plan and we regularly meet to review and update the plan as well as exercising to ensure we are capable of responding to major emergencies of all sizes.  We have also signed mutual aid agreements with our neighbouring communities to allow us to help each other in the event of a major disaster affecting any one or all of us.

We have an all hazards emergency plan as well as a number of disaster specific emergency plans.  In the future, these plans will be posted on the web site as they are updated. You will also find links to various sites that will provide more information on preparing your home for disasters and planning to survive for 72 hours.
