St. Paul’s Regional

Emergency Management Agency

St. Paul’s Regional Emergency Management Agency (REMA) is responsible for planning, coordinating and supporting emergency agencies and resources during major emergencies and disasters.

REMA-large
REMA-small

REMA is established under the Town of Elk Point Bylaw No. 731/14. REMA works with all departments, utility companies, other municipalities and nonprofit groups to prepare, respond and recover more quickly when a disaster occurs. REMA manages the region’s emergency management plan and six sub-plans which identifies the region’s resources and organization in the event of an emergency or disaster.

The entire process and readiness of emergency management is compiled in those series of plans. The REMP is the master document developed by various agencies such as police, fire, municipal works, and emergency social services. The director and all the agency representatives of the various essential services agencies meet on an annual basis to discuss and refine plans.

The main plan was developed using the hazards identified in the hazard assessment. The plan is now in place and is ready should it be required. As the plan is a living document and always requires updates and upgrades, it is never ‘done’, but it is ready to support our region.

The Emergency Management Committee

The Emergency Management Committee is made up of councillors from each municipality and has the responsibility of designating a Director of Emergency Management and mandating their responsibilities.

The Director is responsible for:

  • emergency_committee_icon_1

    Ensuring that risk analysis are conducted.

  • emergency_committee_icon_2

    A mobilization plan is crafted and maintained.

  • emergency_committee_icon_3

    Regular planning meetings are scheduled.

  • emergency_committee_icon_4

    The plan being exercised routinely.
