After a Fire
After a fire, you may have contact with police, government officials and community agencies here to assist you. The Red Deer City Victim Services Unit is one such agency.
Our staff and/or volunteers may be called upon by the Red Deer City RCMP Detachment to provide you with emotional support, information or community referrals.
Some local agencies you may receive information on or be referred to are the Canadian Red Cross, Alberta Emergency Management Agency and the City of Red Deer Fire & Injury Prevention Bureau.
No one can truly be prepared for a natural disaster. They can be horrifying and confusing for those involved. Natural disasters are unpredictable and the aftermath can be dreadful.
The Red Deer City Victim Services Unit maybe called to the scene of a Natural Disaster by police to provide emotional support, information and community referrals to victims.
The Canadian Red Cross may provide emergency and disaster services such as emergency lodging; reception and information; emergency food; emergency clothing; personal services and family reunification services.
The dangers associated with a disaster are not over once the fire is out. Protect yourself and your family. For further information on assistance and recovery support available here in Alberta please visit the Alberta Emergency Management Agency website for more information.
The City of Red Deer website has information on Fire & Injury Prevention which includes the prevention of fire related property loss and injury through public education, inspection, and enforcement of the Fire Code and investigation of fire incidents.
