The Transportation department works to provide safe and cost-effective systems for all modes of transportation. Year-round, MD crews maintain these systems at acceptable levels of service, and expands them to facilitate population growth and economic development of our community.
THIS PROGRAM IS VOLUNTARY, AND YOUR CONTACT INFO WILL NEVER BE DISCLOSED TO THIRD PARTIES OTHER THAN EMERGENCY SERVICES PERSONNEL.
This department is comprised of three primary sections: Bylaw Enforcement, Protective Services and Animal Control. Together, these departments serve the community by providing health and safety, animal control, enforcement of provincial statutes and municipal bylaws, emergency management, education, prevention and cooperative support with local RCMP and other government agencies.

Expect the best...but plan for the worst.

OUR PROXIMITY TO DENSELY FORESTED AREAS CAN POSE A THREAT TO CITIZENS WHEN CONDITIONS CONSPIRE. HERE ARE THREE SIMPLE STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO SAFEGUARD YOUR FAMILY.

1

Get on the Grid

Make sure your contact details are on file with the MD’s Emergency Notification System so you can receive critical alerts.

2

Be in the Know

Monitor local radio stations like Lake FM (92.7) for breaking news or important instructions related to an emergency event.

Use the Wildfire App

Download the free Albert Wildfire App for Apple or Android devices to receive real-time alerts on wildfires in Lesser Slave River.

When Evacuation Becomes Necessary

The boreal region of Lesser Slave River is certainly beautiful. However, the proximity of many communities to forested areas can pose a threat to lives, homes and livelihoods when certain conditions conspire. Here are a few steps to follow when evacuation due to an emergency situation becomes necessary.

Know the location of the evacuation center closest to your community. There are several throughout the community, and they are listed in the Emergency section of mdlsr.ca.
Create your own 72-hour emergency kit to ensure you have certain necessities at a moment’s notice. A checklist can be found in the Emergency section of mdlsr.ca.
