Emergency Preparedness

Westlock County maintains a Municipal Emergency Plan that details steps to be taken in the event of an emergency occurring within the County. Such emergencies could include incidents involving dangerous goods, utility and water failures, extreme weather and environmental incidents, transportation incidents including but not limited to dangerous goods, oil spills, railways/cars and wildfires. Westlock County Fire Services has mutual aid agreements in place with the Town of Westlock, Village of Clyde and other surrounding areas, as well; we work closely with Alberta Environment Sustainable Resources fighting wildland fires.
