Forewarned & Forearmed: A report on the Calgary Emergency Management Agency & the 2013 June flood

After the June 2013 floods, a number of independent reports were commissioned for various aspects of the City’s response, which are now being called Canada’s costliest natural disaster.

The Conference Board of Canada was commissioned to review the response during the flood of June 2013.

Over 40 representatives from the public and private sectors were interviewed, many of whom worked in the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) during the flood or had critical roles in the response to the flood.

On Wednesday, July 2, 2014 The Conference Board, along with the Calgary Emergency Management Agency, presented the report to the Emergency Management Committee of Council, followed by an update to local media.
