Mutual Aid Alberta 2016 Forum


Mutual aid groups from across Alberta converged in Nisku on March 3rd for the Mutual Aid Alberta Forum. "The current economic challenges make our partnerships more critical," says Mutual Aid Alberta Chair, Shell Clarke. "When we know each other, and are able to leverage the resources and capabilities of one another, response to emergencies is better and recovery is faster."

During his update on AEMA's 2016 initiatives, Acting Managing Director, Shane Schreiber commended mutual aid groups on the work they do "before the bad thing happens".

Additional presentations included the STARS Emergency Link Centre; Incident Investigation; Industry and Municipal Response Capabilities; and the Mutual Aid Merger of CMAC and SOMAG.  

"The presentations sparked some excellent dialogue throughout the day," says Clarke. "By their very nature, mutual aid groups are innovative and creative, and evolve over time to meet future challenges. The forum connects these groups and encourages sharing experiences and expertise and that benefits us all."
