Town of Three Hills Emergency Management

The Town of Three Hills Emergency Management provides a prompt and coordinated response to emergencies affecting the Town, and to protect the health, welfare and safety of all persons within the Town of Three Hills.

Local authorities within the Town of Three Hills are responsible for managing the first response to an emergency event. The Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) supports municipalities through field staff and also provide the Alberta Emergency Alert.

The Town of Three Hills is a participating municipality of the Kneehill Regional Emergency Management Agency (KREMA). KREMA is a regional initiative involving the municipalities of Trochu, Three Hills, Linden, Carbon, Acme and Kneehill County. The Agency meets quarterly to discuss the plan, updates to the plan, including risk assessments.

72-hours, is your family prepared? 

If you or your family are caught in an emergency or disaster, are you prepared? Do you have a 72-hour kit? An emergency plan?  Preparedness is a shared responsibility. We know that in some cases when a disaster occurs, it can take up to three days for emergency responders to reach you while they deal with the response and the most critically injured. Make sure you take the time now to prepare yourself with the items necessary to survive for a 72-hour period.

Create your own 72-hour emergency kit, and you will have the necessary items to help you and your family until emergency responders can reach you.
