Emergency Clearance

Lending a hand when needed.

Authorized MD personnel carry a laminated ID card to reassure authorities and residents that the holder has been authorized by the MD to perform certain duties and should be allowed to carry these duties out. Authorized holders are listed below.
Forest Protection Areas are the domain of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. Accordingly, all fire bans and advisories, OHV restrictions and other fire-related restrictions within these areas are issued by this provincial entity. It is the duty of the MD to communicate, and encourage compliance with, any ordinance from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. Use the links below for vital updates on the status of each of the Forest Protection Areas within the MD.

Identifying an Emergency Clearance Card

An MD-issued Emergency Clearance Card is a rigid plastic card (like a credit card) that has the employee's photo, name, department and title on the front. The card will also contain a holographic security laminate, and will display the expiry date on the bottom.
