COMMENTS: Alberta Parks is working on enhancing our response to disaster and emergencies and overall emergency management preparedness. As such, we’re looking to seek input from other jurisdictions. Our team has prepared a request for information and are specifically seeking input from Alberta’s National Parks, as these are more applicable to us than the eastern provinces.We have also requested this information from our provincial and territorial counterparts, and will be rolling up the information (which we will circulate once received).
Would you be able to circulate this on our behalf? We are requesting responses by March 22nd to Brad.Marshall@gov.ab.ca.
