Disasters can strike without warning. That is why it is important to be ready for an emergency.

The Office of Emergency Management ensures that the City of Edmonton is prepared for, can respond to, and can recover from a disaster or major emergency.

During a disaster or emergency, stay up-to-date by checking out the City's Facebook or X accounts, the City website, or by phoning 311.
