  1. About CHEMA
  2. Preparing for an Emergency
  3. Other resources

The Chestermere Emergency Management Agency (CHEMA) is run by the City of Chestermere and exists to coordinate disaster assistance and relief efforts in the event of a city-wide emergency. CHEMA meets regularly to discuss emergency prevention, plan responses, determine relief efforts and ensure agreements are in place with partner organizations.

Emergency management is the ongoing process of planning and allocating resources to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. A disaster is an emergency that exceeds the communities' resources.

 There are four phases of emergency management

  1. Prevention - actions taken to prevent or mitigate the impact of disasters (reduce risk). 
  2. Preparedness - measures taken by individuals and communities to prepare for the occurrence of a hazard event. 
  3. Response - timely and effective actions taken during an event such as emergency response and using the Emergency Command Centre if necessary.
  4. Recovery - the process of returning to a "normal" state after a disaster has occurred. This would include rebuilding a community.
