EMO and Resource List Realities

An an emergency management organization (EMO), you're responsible for keeping your community's disaster response resource list current and relevant at all times - you get to decide how this happens.

To some it sounds simple, but in reality we know it's a big challenge.

It's hard enough to know what's available locally and beyond, and then you have to keep it current!

A repetitive nightmare given standard lists are static by nature, and a snapshot in time of what resources actually exist and who to contact.

Corner of your Desk & Limited Capacity Combo

This is made harder since most emergency management professionals, like yourself, deal with emergency preparedness off the corner of your desk, with this being just one of your many responsibilities.

Further, there is often limited staffing capacity to attend to the on-going requirement to check it the contact details you have remains current.

Deepen Local Connections

Local businesses and groups have resources you need, and want to help your community when the next disaster happens.

We guide you through a community engagement process to grow this aspect of your resource list.

We created the FREE Business and Community Contact listing options to help small businesses better connect with their local EMOs.

They are directed to your profile page where they can "Request to be Added" and you'll determine if they are a fit for your list or not.

Importance of Staying Current

EMOs need their list to be current at all times, but you don't have the staff time to stay on top of that requirement.

This is a key driver in our list management service.

ALL EMLPlatform members receive regular reminders to stay up-to-date and new additions to the directory. 

You have 24/7 access to your profile and the ability to make changes anytime to ensure you can be contacted when needed.

A Vision for Improving Disaster Response

“In Alberta, local jurisdictions are primarily responsible for local disasters. 

Having access to local resources is critical for early response and the EMLPlatform is an innovation that can improve local capacity and resilience."

Stephen LacroixStephen LacroixAssistant Deputy Minister, Alberta Emergency Management Agency

“Emergency management requires community support, continuous improvement, and planning upgrades to keep pace with changing cultures, environments, technologies, and public needs. 

EMLCanada could easily be the most powerful tool in our emergency preparedness, response, and recovery toolkit that will undoubtedly revolutionize the way that we – and other EMOs – source and procure emergency resources.”

Dave BrandDave BrandRed Deer County Director of Community Services, Protective Services & Emergency Management

“We are excited to support this strengthening relationships between local emergency management organizations and businesses will result in better preparation, response, and recovery. 

Local businesses want to lend a hand when our communities are in need – this is an easy and effective way to build bridges.”
