The Councils of the Municipal District of Willow Creek, Town of Nanton, Town of Stavely, Town of Fort Macleod and Town of Claresholm agreed a new Intermunicipal Emergency Services Agreement in 2020.
The municipalities each understand the value of establishing policies, programs and processes for collaborating on the planning, development, training and operation of their respective Emergency Services Departments, the purchase, operation, use, maintenance, repair and replacement of their respective equipment and facilities, and the coordination and delivery of the Emergency Services, for the joint benefit of all citizens regardless of their community.
The cornerstone of the agreement is the establishment of a Level of Service for Emergency Services to be delivered by each of the fire departments to the citizens of the Municipal District of Willow Creek. This level of service establishes the required training, equipment and other resources that are to be dedicated on an annual basis. This ensures that regardless of where a citizen resides within the M.D. of Willow Creek that they can expect to receive the same level of service as any other citizen.
All signatories to this Agreement will participate in regular committee meetings where local and inter municipal initiatives and concerns pertaining to Emergency Services will be discussed.
