In case of a natural disaster or an accidental hazardous material release, partial or full evacuations of the Jasper town site and outlying area may be necessary.
How will I know the town is being evacuated?
Evacuation Alert If the situation allows, emergency personnel will issue an Evacuation Alert, informing the public to prepare to evacuate. The information will be broadcast through the Alberta Emergency Alert, local media and the Jasper Emergency Information Hotline at 780-852-3311.
Depending on the nature of the situation, there may be little or no time to notify the public, and authorities may issue an Evacuation Order immediately. The information will be broadcast through the same channels as an Alert, and law enforcement personnel (RCMP, fire brigade, wardens, bylaw officers) will be enforcing the Evacuation Order in the affected area.
If the public's current location is the safest place to be, authorities may direct people to shelter-in-place.
