Emergency Clearance

Lending a hand when needed.

Municipal management and employees often pitch in to help peace officers, firefighters and intermunicipal agencies respond to critical events. During these situations, MD staff may be called upon to perform duties that would normally require a uniform or some form of official identification. Because of this need to respond to unique situations at a moment's notice, all authorized employees are given a Lesser Slave River security card.

The security card is intended to reassure authorities and residents alike that the holder has been authorized by the MD to perform certain duties and should be allowed to carry these duties out. A current list of authorized employees is listed below.
