Emergency Plan

Farm Animal Emergency Preparedness Plan

During the summer of 2019, there were a multitude of fires across the northern half of Alberta that resulted in great economic, emotional and physical loss to residents, business owners and producers.
When these events took place it resulted in municipalities attempting to coordinate measures they were unprepared for. Within the Central Peace Region, comprised of Saddle Hills County, M.D. of Spirit River 133, Birch Hills County, Town of Spirit River and the Village of Rycroft, there is an elevated risk of a similar situation occuring in the event of a large animal livestock emergency.
