New Legislation to Help Improve 911 Service in Alberta
None of us can predict when an emergency is going to happen. But when it does, we all depend on 911 operators to pick up the line when we dial those three all important numbers. Today, 911 call centres in Alberta are facing serious challenges ranging from declining funding, spiking call volumes and the affordability of new technology. The new Emergency 911 Act helps address these challenges.
An external review of the response to the Lesser Slave Lake Wildfires in May 2011 has resulted in 19 recommendations to strengthen Alberta’s emergency response system.
