Emergency Preparedness

A disaster is an event resulting in serious harm to the safety, health or welfare of people or widespread damage to properties, and these can happen anywhere, anytime. The Town of Okotoks Protective Services combined with other Town departments and provincial and federal agencies will provide a prompt and coordinated response to a disaster affecting the citizens of Okotoks.
