Thorhild County maintains a Municipal Emergency Plan that details steps to be taken in the event of an emergency occurring within the County. Such emergencies could include incidents involving dangerous goods, failure of utilities, extreme weather, environmental incidents, transportation accidents, oil and gas wells and pipelines. This plan is updated annually.

Mutual Aid Agreements are in place with municipalities surrounding Thorhild County and Alberta Agriculture and Forestry in order to ensure sufficient resources may be available to respond to such emergencies. 

FIRE BAN is in effect April 27 2018.

The Fire Ban will remain in effect until further notice. The Fire Ban means there are absolutely no outdoor fires permitted including, but not limited to; open fires, camp fires, brush piles and burning barrels.  

The discharge of fireworks is also prohibited during this ban.  No new fire permits will be issued during the period of the ban and all previously issued permits remain cancelled  

A person who sets a fire during this ban will be issued a ticket up to a $1000.00 per Bylaw 09-2018.

The Fire Ban will stay in effect until fire hazard conditions improve significantly.
