A call for action on the Alberta Disaster Recovery Program from the Town of High River
October 5, 2015

Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) passes resolution calling for external review of Disaster Recovery Program

From the AUMA:

Last updated: October 05, 2015
Status: Adopted
Sponsor: Town of High River

Active Clauses:
THEREFOR BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association urge the Government of Alberta to employ external means including consultation with municipalities to identify and implement specific improvements to the DRP that will expedite the completion of outstanding files and will develop a more effective DRP delivery model able to efficiently meet the needs of Albertans affected by future disasters.

Where As Clauses:
WHEREAS the Alberta Disaster Recovery Program in its current form has proven inadequate and ineffective in achieving its mandate in a timely manner thereby unnecessarily prolonging the negative effects of disasters;

WHEREAS an unacceptable number of DRP files affecting thousands of Albertans still remain unresolved over 2 years after the 2013 flooding disaster in Southern Alberta; and

Whereas an external examination and review of the DRP is required to assess recent program changes and to objectively recommend improvements that will enhance the effectiveness of the Program during and after a disaster.
