Emergencies and Response Information
Provided by: Government of Saskatchewan - Public Safety Agency
Most emergencies within Saskatchewan are managed at the local level first – usually by fire, police and emergency management. Agencies (municipality or First Nation; not individual residents) can request assistance from the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agencey (SPSA). The SPSA can provide emergency food, clothing and shelter at the request of communities that are experiencing an emergency or crisis. This program is provided in conjunction with community leadership and is not provided directly to individuals or families experiencing a personal disaster.
Families or individuals experiencing a personal disaster can reach out to the Canadian Red Cross for support for up to 72 hours.
SaskAlert is Saskatchewan’s Emergency Public Alerting program used to alert the public in real-time of an emergency situation.
- An emergency alert issued through SaskAlert will:
- let you know what the emergency is;
- let you know where it is happening;
- provide instructions for you to follow to stay safe; and
- advise you when the incident is over.
- The SaskAlert App is available to download on Adroid and iPhone devices.
- Visit the Emergency Alerts page to view current alerts.
