EMO and Red Cross Alerts Every moment counts when lives are threatened by unexpected, destructive and potentially lethal weather events. Addressing wildfires, massive floods, ice storms and earthquakes, governments across Canada have EMOs that support disaster relief efforts. After a disaster, Canadians can expect recovery support from a variety of sources including their insurance companies; local, provincial and federal governments; and non-profit and non-governmental (NGO) agencies. Part of the world’s largest humanitarian network, the Canadian Red Cross is one NGO that brings together volunteers to care for people who are in need in disaster situations.Sources: Government of CanadaCanadian Red CrossAlberta Emergency Alert Weather AlertsAlberta Emergency Alert (AEA) issues alerts for weather events, natural and man-made hazards, Amber Alerts, and other emergencies that could pose an immediate threat to life. This life-saving network warns Albertans of an occurring or impending emergency or disaster and tells them what action to take to protect themselves and their families. Effective April 6th 2018, the most serious alerts will go directly to wireless devices (compatible smartphones, some tablets, and potentially other electronics) in an impacted area.
