REMP is the Regional Emergency Management Plan for all 10 summer village municipalities surrounding Pigeon Lake, Alberta. Our program consists of mitigation, preparedness, recovery, and response plans to protect our residents and visitors.
The ultimate purpose of emergency management is to save lives, preserve the environment, protect property and the economy. The protection of life is of paramount importance. In the broadest sense, emergency management raises the understanding of risks and contributes to a safer, prosperous, sustainable, and disaster-resilient society using the Incident Command System (ICS).
As part of the commitment to the Pigeon Lake residents' safety and protecting the community, exercises may be held in conjunction with the County of Wetaskiwin, County of Ponoka and Leduc County. These exercises simulate a potential disaster and help prepare first-responders and other officials on the protocols and unexpected challenges involved in a major, community-wide emergency.
What is Emergency Management?
We believe emergency management is an ongoing process to PREVENT, MITIGATE, PREPARE FOR, RESPOND TO, and RECOVER FROM an incident that threatens life, property, operations, the environment and the local economy.

Incident Command System
What is ICS?
The Incident Command System (ICS) is an international standardized method for incident management. While we may have emergencies everyday, these smaller incidents are professionally handled by our emergency responers. Our agency has been formed for when those incidents are so large (type 3+) that we require additional assistance and a method to grow our response.
