Helping Calgarians prepare for high water: A message from our Mayor

The City continues to take steps to prepare for potential flooding this year and citizens should too.



Calgarians can go to a new website at calgary.ca/floodprep for up-to-date information on the spring high water season and what is happening in our community. The site contains information on what The City is doing to prepare for high water season and what steps Calgarians should take to prepare themselves and protect their families in the event of future flooding.

“We are committed to continue sharing information with the community as it becomes available and to helping Calgarians take steps to prepare for future flooding,” said Mayor Naheed Nenshi. “We can’t prevent flooding but we can improve our readiness and response should there be any flooding.”

In addition to the website, The City's planning a series of videos and public information sessions designed to keep Calgarians informed.

Updates are also available through The City’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, our Newsroom, email alerts and mobile app.

Calgarians can also listen for Alberta Emergency Alerts and sign up for provincial notifications at www.emergencyalert.alberta.ca.
