        and high impact to the municipality.

       ―level 3 emergency‖ means an incident that requires level 2 response with additional
        government support to coordinate emergency activities. Generally, this is an incident
        of long duration (over 8 hours) and high impact to the municipality.

2.1.1                  SEVERE WEATHER WARNING



         (1)     Alert

                 a)      Severe weather watches and warnings are issued by Environment
                         Canada and are usually passed to the public through radio and
                         television stations.

                 b)      A warning message is issued when dangerous severe weather is
                         occurring or considered imminent, based on reports from the Weather
                         Watcher Network or other sources. Warnings are issued for specific
                         Counties, Municipal Districts, or Special Areas. Warnings are updated
                         hourly. Listen to the radio or weather radio for updated information.


         (2)     Actions to be Taken on Receipt of a Severe Weather Warning:

                 a)      notify your local emergency responders. A heightened level of
                         readiness may be necessary and they may wish to contact Mutual Aid
                         Agreement responders;

                 b)      notify your public works department to prepare for any damage to
                         roads, property or infrastructure;

                 c)      notify local health facilities. This would assist them either to prepare for
                         protection of their patients or residents, or to prepare to receive injured
                         citizens;

                 d)      notify local utility companies. It may be necessary to repair power,
                         water, or telephone outages immediately;

                 e)      monitor regional television networks or cable systems (e.g. CBC, CTV,
                         Weather Channel) for current weather reporting and forecasts, and
                         monitor Weather radio if available; and

                 f)      notify local citizens via public warning procedures. (Reference - Part

2.1.2              ALBERTA EMERGENCY PUBLIC WARNING SYSTEM

For participating municipalities, the Alberta Emergency Public Warning System (EPWS)
provides municipal officials with swift on-air access to radio, television, and cable outlets to
warn residents of major life-threatening emergencies. Its technology allows municipal officials
to over-ride the current programming of major broadcast stations by use of a touch tone
telephone. Through special coding, the message is on-air in less than two minutes providing
extensive coverage.

Procedure for access to the Emergency Public Warning System by local officials is limited to the
following EPWS Authorized Users:

When the municipality is experiencing an event of such magnitude that the response is beyond
their capability, assistance can be obtained from neighboring municipalities, industrial, and
provincial government agencies.



(1)      Disaster Mutual Aid Agreements

         As signatories and party to mutual aid agreements, neighboring municipalities and other
         emergency services providers agree to assist each other in time of need. (Reference - Part
         4 - Disaster Mutual Aid Agreements



(2)      Procedure for Mutual Aid Assistance

Part 2
                                  Municipal Emergency Plan
              Town of
               High Prairie




Major emergencies or disasters require response from multi-organizational multi-jurisdictional
resources coordinated by activation of the Emergency Site Management System. The ESM
System is a method of coordinating emergency site operations, which is supported by the
Emergency Operations Center. The E.O.C. functions as a point of coordination, or "nerve
center", anticipating and supporting the needs of site and additional needs of the municipality as
a whole.


(1)      Emergency Site Manager (ESM)

         The ESM is appointed by the Director of Disaster Services as the situation requires. It is
         the responsibility of the ESM to manage available resources by making the necessary
         decisions and coordinating the overall on-scene response.


(2)      Emergency Operations Center (EOC)

         The establishment of an EOC including staffing procedures, identification of various roles
         with specific duties, and a listing of required resources are included in Part 2 of this plan.
         Under the direction of the Director of Disaster Services, the EOC may be activated to the
         degree considered necessary. The EOC must anticipate and support the needs of the ESM
         and the municipality. EOC personnel may include:

         a)   Elected officials

         b)   Director of Disaster Services

         c)   Municipal Administrator

         d)   Senior officers of the Police, Fire, and Ambulance Services

         e)   Senior officials from other municipal departments, i.e. Social Services,
              Public Information, Public Works, Transportation, Utilities, RHA.

         f)   Representatives from industry, institutions, Provincial and Federal Governments.


Smaller municipalities may have to cover several of the EOC functions with limited resources.
Therefore, they should be prepared to coordinate their emergency operations with mutual aid
municipalities when at the Level 3 emergency response.

2.4.1 WORKER'S COMPENSATION FOR VOLUNTEERS



Introduction

(1)      The Workers' Compensation Amendment Act 1987 (Alberta) includes a provision
         whereby benefits under the Act may be extended to volunteers engaged in work related to
         an emergency.

(2)      A related provision is a 1960 Canada - Alberta Agreement on Workers' Compensation for
         Civil Defense Workers, whereby Canada will share with Alberta the costs of
         compensation awarded to a volunteer emergency worker.

(3)      In order for these provisions to have effect, it is necessary that volunteers be enrolled
         with the Executive Director of Emergency Management Albert, Alberta Transportation;
         this requirement will be satisfied if volunteers are registered with the municipality at the
         time any injury is sustained.


Procedure

(1)      The following procedure should be followed:

         a)     Ensure all volunteer emergency workers are registered when they start their
                emergency tasks (see Section 2.4).

         b)     In the event that an emergency task-related injury is sustained by a volunteer, the
                appropriate Workers' Compensation Board report forms -- one completed by the
                volunteer as the "employee", and one completed by the municipality as the
                "employer" -- should be forwarded to: Director, Emergency Management Alberta


                Attention: Executive Director, Emergency Management Alberta


(2)      For further explanation or information, contact your Emergency Management Alberta
         District Officer.

2.5 EMERGENCY PUBLIC INFORMATION



The responsibilities of the Public Information Officer (PIO) or alternate during an emergency are
to provide direction and control of information by:


a)       Preparing and releasing public alert/warning announcements in conjunction with the
         Director of Disaster Services and Council (CEO or CAO).

b)       Keeping the public and media informed of the emergency and actions being taken to
         bring the emergency under control.

c)       Coordinating media information activities on scene.

d)       Establishing a media information room near the Emergency Operations Center.

e)       Preparing timely and informative news releases (written) for media and public
         distribution.

f)       Providing a central public information service to receive inquiries from relatives,
         residents, and general public.

g)       Arranging for media tours of site, if required.

h)       Activating Declaration of State of Local Emergency Notification Procedure. (Reference -
                                       Part 2 - Emergency Operations Procedures)

i)       Coordinating messenger services for public information operations.


Procedures

(1)      Schedule the first news conference as soon after the event as possible.

(2)      Set media guidelines regarding accessibility to information, length of question periods,
         conference/briefings, site tours, etc.

(3)      Ensure good communication with frequent "updates" on your bulletin board or white
         board.

(4)      Ensure a messenger is available to assist media whenever possible.

(5)      Media pooling is the practice of selecting a small number of media personnel to represent
         print and electronic news organizations on the emergency site. A good practice is to have

             Town of
              High Prairie




         the media select (from their own ranks) one print journalist, one still photographer, one
         video cameraman and one audio technician. These will be escorted to the site, and will
         be expected to share information with all media on their return. Media pooling is useful
         when access to the emergency site is limited. Otherwise the media will expect full access
         to the site.

(6)      Ensure you have "expert" spokesperson available for validity and credibility.

(7)      Ensure you have bilingual capabilities, as appropriate.      Certain circumstances may
         warrant professional translation services.




NOTE:

Be prepared to provide the media with honest, non-speculative answers related to these basic
questions:

         -     Who is involved?
         -     What happened?
         -     Where did it happen?
         -     When did it happen?
         -     Why did it happen?
         -     How is it being dealt with?
         -     How much will it cost?

Communications Procedures
General

During an emergency, all available means of communications are pressed into service. These
may include radio communications, telephones, messengers, and additional resources.


Radio Communications

Normally, the primary means of communication during an emergency response are the mobile
radio systems of the emergency services. Communications between the emergency scene and
the municipality generally originates with the fire service using the common municipal radio
network.

In major emergency situations, additional radio communications may be accessed through:

a)       Local industrial, commercial and general service band (CB) resources.

b)       Alberta Amateur Radio Emergency Services (AARES) - Ham Radio

c)       Emergency Management Alberta-          800-272-9600 (24 hours)


Telephones

The municipal telephone system is required to provide communications for the emergency
operations center supporting the on-scene emergency services operations.

This includes internal EOC operations and external communications accessing resources and
managing public information. The following telephone lines have been designated under * Line
Load Control.




* Incoming calls are blocked out

Cellular phones should not be considered as a primary means of emergency communications.

                                            Definitions


Confirmation of Onset of Pandemic in Canada
The federal Pandemic Influenza Committee confirms the onset of a pandemic influenza when the
pandemic influenza virus is detected in Canada and the Federal Minister of Health makes a
formal declaration of such. Multiple geographic areas will be involved with high rates of
morbidity and mortality.

Human-to-Human Transmission Confirmed
The novel influenza virus demonstrates sustained person-to-person transmission within or
outside Canada with at least one outbreak over a 2-week period in one country, or the
identification of the novel influenza virus in several countries.

Novel Influenza Strain Identified
The novel influenza virus has been detected in one or more humans within or outside Canada.
Although this is not a precursor to an influenza pandemic, the potential does exist as there is little
or no immunity to this particular virus in the general population.

Second or Later Waves in Canada
Further outbreaks caused by the pandemic influenza virus may occur within a year after the
initial wave of the infection. These waves may affect different segments of the population.

3.12       DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN

General

A disaster may cause extensive personal suffering and extensive loss, or damage to property, and
may require the provision of a broad range of resources and assistance to those affected. The
establishment of a Disaster Victims Assistance Center is the most effective method of providing
immediate and mid-term services to victims of the disaster. Community Health Nurses are
available to provide health counseling and support on site as well as provision of an outreach
service to the affected community(s).


Establishment of a Disaster Victims Assistance Center

The Director of Disaster Services, in liaison with the Emergency Management Alberta District
Officer will conduct an on-site assessment of the situation and may recommend the establishment
of a Disaster Victims Assistance Center. The Town of High Prairie Administration Office is
designated as the Disaster Victims Assistance Center. (Reference - Part 4 - Disaster Victims
Assistance Center Reference).

Disaster Recovery Priorities

If the municipality suffers from widespread disaster or major emergency, the municipality must set
priorities for:

a)  preparation of a damage and loss assessment for Disaster Recovery Program
b)  restoration of community services (utilities, transportation, community support services,
    schools, institutions, etc.)
c) resumption of business operations
e) rebuilding and restoration of social services/activities to pre-incident conditions.
f) critical incident stress debriefing


Disaster Recovery Program

There is no disaster recovery program permanently in place. The provincial government may
authorize a program after evaluation of all the circumstances following a widespread disaster.

If your municipality suffers from a disaster or emergency, and you think disaster recovery
assistance may be appropriate, then take the following action:

     (1)     Immediately advise your Emergency Management Alberta District Officer or Alberta
             Infrastructure, Emergency Management Alberta, Edmonton (1-800-272-9600, 24 hrs.,
             Normal hours: 780-422-9000) of your request for recovery assistance.

     (1)   Without delay, collect all available information as to the extent of the problem, including
           the cause, the number of people, homes, businesses and public property affected and in
           what manner. Record all costs related to emergency operations.

     (2)   Assist Emergency Management Alberta and other government departments in the
           collection of information and registration if a program is announced.

4.1      Hazard Specific Emergency Plans

The Municipal Emergency Plan (MEP) is based on the principle of an all-hazard response to
emergencies or disasters in order to co-ordinate services and agencies to save lives and property.

The all-hazard approach does not outline hazard-specific plans, but in it‘s very basic principle
gathers the team, identifies responsibilities for each individual or agency present and then co-
ordinate the response utilizing the resources at hand, while planning ahead and anticipating
future needs.

While this approach is sufficient to meet the needs of a general disaster response, hazard-
specific plans better support the response co-ordination than a general procedure by suggesting
specific job descriptions, response mechanisms, resources and support functions specific for the
hazard.

4.1.1 Potential Hazards - Detailed Analysis

This section identifies the hazards that have the highest probability of occurrence and potential to
affect the Town of High Prairie. Hazard-specific plans have been prepared for the six hazards
identified in the risk/hazard analysis.


 Hazards               Probability       Severity             Risk Level        Priority

4.2 Public Warning Systems

         4.2.1      SEVERE WEATHER ADVISORY SYSTEM - ENVIRONMENT
         CANADA

Severe weather watches and warnings are issued by Environment Canada. As a precaution,
severe thunderstorm warnings are further disseminated by Alberta Transportation to the
municipalities concerned. Severe thunderstorms are an expected part of summer weather in
Alberta. Note: Severe weather information is contained in the front pages of all local telephone
directories in Alberta.

Telephone Numbers Environment Canada 780-493-3143

Precautions for Winter Storms

Precautions for Summer Storms

Flood Safety Guide


Three Levels of Severe Weather Advisory Messages are:

Weather Watch, Weather Warning, and an Actual Event.

1.         Severe Thunderstorm Watch

           This forecast message will be issued by Environment Canada when meteorological
           conditions exist for severe weather to develop. Severe Weather Watches will normally
           be issued in the late morning for broadcast on radio and television noon-hour
           newscasts. Watches are issued for groups of public forecast regions covering a large
           part of the province.

           When a Watch is issued, thunderstorms may not necessarily have developed, and the
           sky may still be clear. Nevertheless, a Watch should be considered in planning
           activities for the remainder of the day. Keep alert for developing thunderstorms, and
           stay tuned to the radio if possible. Better still, check if a weather radio service is
           available in your area, and monitor it for possible updates to the Watch.

           Town of
           High Prairie




2.       Severe Thunderstorm Warning

         A Warning message is issued when a dangerous severe thunderstorm is occurring or
         considered imminent. Warnings are issued for specific Counties, Municipal Districts,
         Improvement Districts or Special Areas. Warnings are updated hourly. Listen to the
         radio or weather radio for updated information. Destructive winds, very large hail,
         intense lightning, or flooding downpours have occurred, or are about to occur
         somewhere in the Warning area. Keep a lookout for thunderstorms and be
         prepared to take action. Darkening skies along with thunder and lightning will mark
         the storm's approach.

         When a Warning is issued for a specific area, there is a likelihood that a severe weather
         event will occur somewhere in that area. Not all parts of the area may be affected.

         When the Weather Center has reliable evidence that a tornado is occurring, a Tornado
         Warning is issued. In spite of its destructive intensity, a tornado is generally a small
         and short-lived event, which is usually detected by eyewitness reports. With a tornado
         warning in effect, typically only a single location in an area will suffer damage. The
         response should be similar to that for a severe thunderstorm warning. Be
         prepared to move away from the area or to find shelter. Keep a close eye on any
         approaching thunderstorms.


3.       Thunderstorm Approaching

         When a thunderstorm approaches, the safest place to be is inside a solid building,
         especially one with a basement.

         If caught outdoors, keep in mind that the biggest killer in thunderstorms is lightning.
         Be particularly careful with fishing rods and golf clubs, as they may attract a lightning
         bolt. Stay away from fences, metal structures, and farm equipment. Keep away from
         hills, ridges, or wide-open areas, and do not seek shelter under a tree. A ditch or gully
         may be the safest bet.

         Boating accidents are the second biggest cause of fatalities. Any thunderstorm is
         capable of producing dangerous winds. Severe thunderstorms often produce extreme
         winds which could rapidly capsize even large pleasure boats.

             Town of
             High Prairie




4.       Tornado Spotted and Approaching

         Danger at this point can be extreme. If the tornado is directly approaching,
         immediate response is required. Schools and public facilities should activate their
         Tornado Action Plans.

         If you are in or near a building, seek shelter in the basement or in a small room near the
         building's core. Stay away from windows, since flying glass and storm projectiles can
         be deadly. Leave any building that has large expanses of roof, such as a gymnasium or
         an arena. Leave a mobile home to seek shelter in a nearby permanent structure.

5.       When a Severe Tornado Storm Threatens

                 During heavy storm activity, have a battery-powered radio available as a good
                  source for warning information or advice.

                 Check access to the designated shelter area and your "Emergency Kit"; stay
                  away from windows.

                 Avoid traveling any great distance so that you will not be caught in the open.

                 If the storm approaches severe proportions, go to your designated shelter area.

                 If caught outdoors and you cannot reach your designated shelter, lie flat in a
                  ditch, excavation or culvert. If possible, lie flat, holding on to the base of a
                  small tree, bush or shrubbery to avoid being lifted or blown away.

                 If caught while driving, drive away from the funnel at a right angle (if possible).
                  If you cannot escape the path of the funnel, get out of your vehicle immediately
                  and seek shelter in a ditch or a ravine away from the vehicle, keeping the ditch's
                  slope between you and the funnel.

                 If caught away from home in a built up area, seek shelter in a sturdy building
                  and go to an interior hallway or washroom on the lower floor away from flying
                  glass; avoid buildings with large span roofs such as malls or supermarkets, etc.

             Town of
             High Prairie




6.       Mobile Home Owners: Special Precautions

         Mobile home owners must take special precautions to protect themselves; mobile home
         residents are the exception to the "stay indoors" rule. Get out of your mobile home
         immediately and seek shelter in a ditch or a ravine away from the building, keeping the
         ditch's slope between you and the funnel.


                 Severe storms usually travel from a southwest, west, or northwesterly direction;
                  mobile homes facing these directions present a smaller profile to an
                  approaching storm.

                 Mobile homes are vulnerable to being overturned, lifted then hurtled to the
                  ground. They may be protected somewhat by being anchored to the ground
                  using heavy cable or chain which has been secured to the mainframe and
                  embedded into solid concrete set deeply into the ground; the manufacturer
                  should be consulted about tie down measures which can deal with the
                  equivalent of 18,000 kg of explosive pressure being exerted against an area
                  (wall) of 3 meters by 15 meters. A securely anchored mobile home which as
                  been securely skirted by chain link will offer protection (underneath) from
                  flying debris only, if no other shelter is available.


7.       After the Tornado's Impact


                Listen to your radio for information and follow instructions.


                Unless you are requested or qualified to give help, stay away from the stricken
                area.


                Activate your family's pre-planned rendezvous arrangements.


                Avoid using the telephone except for emergencies.

8.       Tornado Watches and Warnings:

         The word tornado may be used in three different weather announcements.

         a)      If there is a severe thunder storm warning, it may include the phrase "Remember:
                 some severe thunderstorms can produce tornados." This is really the same as a
                 tornado watch. It does not mean that there will be a tornado, it means that a
                 tornado could develop. Stay alert and listen to your radio.

         b)      A tornado watch means that all the conditions that make a tornado are present. It
                 does not mean that a tornado will necessarily occur. It is a "watch" only. Listen
                 to your radio for half-hour updates.

         c)      A tornado warning means that a tornado has touched down. If the warning is for
                 the area where you live, take precautions immediately and listen to your radio for
                 constant updates.


Watches and Warnings

The weather office issues, and radio and T.V. repeat weather watches and weather warnings.

Remember - A "watch" is advisory only. Nothing may happen but a watch could develop into a
warning. Stay alert! Listen to your radio.

Remember - A "warning" means that the event is imminent. Take precautions and listen to your
radio.




Information

If you require information on any watch or warning currently in effect, you may call the Severe
Weather Desk at Environment Canada at 780-495-3143, or your local Environment Canada
weather information number.

4.4 VICTIM ASSISTANCE CENTER GUIDELINES


General

   1.     Following a disaster in which there has been widespread or catastrophic damage,
          there may be a need to draw together services from all orders of government, non-
          government organizations, and the private sector to meet the short and mid-term
          needs of the victims.

   2.     This "one-stop shopping center" is called a Victim Assistance Center (VAC).


Purpose

   3.     The purpose of these guidelines is to outline the management, structure, and
          operating procedures, which may be employed in VAC.


Management

   4.     It is a municipal responsibility to establish and operate a VAC. This may be one
          municipality if the disaster event is within its jurisdiction, or a mutually agreed
          co-management by several municipalities if the disaster event occurs over several
          jurisdictions.

   5.     If the municipality or municipalities wishing to establish a VAC feels they do not
          have the resources or capability to manage it, Emergency Management Alberta
          may be requested to assume responsibility for the VAC management. Given
          inter-departmental agreement the Branch would designate staff to participate.

   6.     The municipality(s) establishing VAC will be responsible for funding the
          resources required. All expenditures should be recorded.


Representation in the VAC

   7.     Organizations who may be represented in the VAC will generally provide one of
          two types of support: Direct assistance and longer-term. They may be federal
          and provincial departments, municipal agencies, regional authorities (e.g. regional
          health authorities, school boards, etc) non-governmental organizations (e.g.
          Salvation Army, Red Cross, etc.) , and the private sector (e.g. insurance industry,
          utility companies, etc.). The representation required in VAC will be directed by
          the nature of the disaster event and the needs of those affected. Annex A to these
          guidelines lists organizations, which may have a role in VAC.
                               Municipal Emergency Plan



           Town of
            High Prairie




Emergency Management Alberta Participation

   8.     At a minimum, Emergency Management Alberta will maintain a presence in the
          VAC in a liaison capacity, providing advice and assistance to the VAC in a
          manner similar to that provided to a municipality during the response to the actual
          disaster.

   9.     Should a Disaster Recovery Program have been approved, it may be appropriate
          to establish an application center within the VAC. However, normally a VAC will
          be dealing with the short and mid-term needs of victims, whereas a disaster
          recovery program is a longer-term process and may not overlap conveniently with
          the VAC operation.

   10.    As described above, Emergency Management Alberta may be requested to
          manage the VAC. In that case, and given inter-departmental agreement, the
          Branch would designate the Branch staff to mange the VAC.

VAC Procedures – General

   11.    General. The circumstances forcing the establishment of a VAC can create
          chaos and confusion. Individuals affected by a disaster may be distressed if not
          traumatized and may be greatly concerned for the immediate and future well
          being of their families and businesses. Personnel staffing a VAC must be prepared
          to deal with a number of distressed individuals.

   12.    Flow Control.       Experience has shown that there will inevitably be lengthy
          line-ups, particularly in the first days of VAC operation. This dictates the need for
          some form of access control, assignment of registration numbers to individuals or
          families, an initial screening to determine needs, and then the creation of a flow
          sequence for each individual or family. This will ensure that all necessary
          agencies are included for each case, and will spread the initial and continuing load
          evenly among all agencies and avoid bottlenecks. VAC management staff must
          continually monitor the flow and adjust the sequence as necessary to ensure
          minimum waiting time.

VAC Facilities

   13.    General. The two aspects of a VAC facility, which should be considered in the
          planning stage, are the structure, which houses the VAC and the organization of
          the VAC itself.

   14.    Accommodation. A VAC should be accommodated in a large open space, with
          access to private areas for interviews, child-care, etc. Washroom facilities are
                                      Municipal Emergency Plan



               Town of
                   High Prairie


              essential. Separate rest and refreshment areas for VAC staff and applicants should
              be provided. A high school with cafeteria facilities is ideal as a VAC.

   15.        Organization.       Although the VAC will be organized to the nature of the
              disaster‘s impact on individuals and the facility, there will be some aspects, which
              should be present to ensure efficient operation.

              a.       The VAC should be clearly identified from the outside.

              b.       Dedicated parking is required in sufficient quantity.

              c.       Control of initial is necessary so that applicants can first be directed to
                       registration desks for an assessment of their situation, and then to the
                       appropriate functional areas for more detailed assistance.

              d.       Each functional area should be clearly identified, as should the
                       administrative areas.

              e.       The staff managing the VAC should be readily identifiable, and be available
                       for applicants to contact. All VAC management staff and agency
                       representative should be briefed regularly on VAC status and issues.

              f.       A single public information spokesperson should be identified.

16. Administrative Support.       This will vary with the situation, however some basic
    support aspects should always be present in the VAC.

         a.            Documentation. Initial registration forms should be created and retained
                       centrally. Applicants should receive a registration number for recording on
                       all pertinent documentation. Applicants should be issued a flow sheet from
                       the initial assessment identifying those organizations able to provide
                       detailed assistance.

         b.            VAC Layout.        Large maps of the VAC layout showing the location of
                       each organization should be in several locations in the facility.

         c.            Miscellaneous Support Resources.           Additional telephones will be
                       required for VAC staff, agency representatives and applicants. A childcare
                       area may be required. Refreshments should be supplied for VAC staff and
                       applicants.

         d.            General Administration.       Custodial assistance will be required for
                       frequent clean up of the VAC.

4.5 FLOOD CONTROL – SANDBAGGING GUIDELINES

General

   1.     The Practice of increasing the height of existing terrain to combat floods is called dyking.

   2.     Where a levee exists, increasing the height is called capping, requiring the same
          procedures as dyking.

   3.     The type of dyke used will depend on the material available; however, the grade line
          should generally be two feet above the anticipated high water.

   4.     Railroad crossings require special treatment of rails; ties and ballast should be completely
          removed if practicable.

Construction Methods

   5.     The construction methods outlined are for short reaches. Emergency raising of long
          sections will require time and manpower, which are seldom available

   6.     The general types of dykes or capping are:
          a.   Sand bag dykes;
          b.   Earth fill and sandbags;
          c.   Flash boards.

   7.     Polyethylene barriers may be combined with any of the above methods.

Sandbag Dykes

   8.     Basically, a dyke requires that the sod be stripped form the ground, and that a ―bonding
          trench‖ – one sack deep and two sacks wide – be established in the middle of the
          proposed dyke.

   9.     The dyke must be three times as wide as it is high. If, for example, the dyke has to be
          raised three feet the base wide should be nine feet.

   10.    Sand bags should be only half full. The bottom layer of bags on the dyke should run
          parallel to the river, with the second layer crosswise. The third layer is parallel, the
          fourth crosswise, and so on in alternate fashion. Each succeeding layer is set back the
          width of half a sandbag, both on the riverside and the landside of the dyke, giving it a
          step-like appearance.

   11.    It is not necessary to tie the sacks. The top, or unfilled part of the sack is stretched
          lengthwise and the next sandbag is laid on tip of it. This method is known as ‗lapping‖.

   12.    Sandbags must be tamped firmly in place, and it‘s a good idea to have extra sandbags on
          hand to strengthen any weak spots as the water rises.
                                  Municipal Emergency Plan



         Town of
          High Prairie




Notes:      1.       Alternate direction of sacks with bottom layer, i.e.: bottom layer lengthwise
                     with dyke, next layer crosswise.
            2.       Lap unfilled portion under next sack.
            3.       tying or sewing of sacks is not necessary.
            4.       sacks should be approximately one-half full of clay, silt or sand.
            5.       Tamp thoroughly in place.

Earth Fill Sandbag Dykes

13.    Combination earth fill and sandbag dykes are usually more effective than sandbags only.
       the possibility of seepage is prevented by earth fill, which may be used up to height of 3
       feet, where not exposed to wave action.

14.    Conservation consists of small embankment of sandbags and earth. the surface on which
       the dyke is to be built should be thoroughly scarred by ploughing or other methods in
       order to maintain a watertight bond.

15.    The material, tools and labour required for a combination earth filled and sandbag dyke
       1,000 feet long and two feet high are:

       a)    10,000 sandbags:
       b)    30 shovels;
       c)    1 plough or grader to scar the surface;
       d)    100 – 120 laborers.

Flash Board Dykes

16.   Flashboard capping or dykes are used for 3 feet or less increase in height, and to prevent
      erosion due to wave action.

17.   The following list of material and labor is required for a flashboard dyke, two board‘s
      high, and 1,000 feet long.

      a)       Rough Pine/Spruce:

               2‖ x 4‖ x 10‘                                           800 FBM*

      c)       Claw hammers                                                    6
      d)       Shovels                                                      100
      e)       Mauls                                                           4
      f)       Saw Cross                                                       2
      g)       Wheelbarrows                                                 100

      i)       Labor                                           100 – 120 laborers
               * FBM – Foot Board Measure

18.   The construction sequence is:

      a)       Plow or dig a furrow into the crown of the road, levee or slope. this furrow must
               be straight and level and dug so that the bottom flashboard will fit flush against the
               riverside edge of the furrow;

      b)       Place the bottom 1 x 12 on edge into the furrow;

      c)       Drive 2 x 4 posts on the land side of the 1 x 12, so that the boards are wedge
               against the furrow – post intervals should be 4 – 6 feet, and driven in no less than 2
               feet;

      d)       Back fill the furrow, tamping both sides;

      e)       Add boards for height, ensuring joints are broken on posts – generally limit height
               to 3 feet;

      f)       Scar the surface behind the board fence at least 2 inches deep, to ensure a good
               bond with the earth fill;
                                     Municipal Emergency Plan



            Town of
                High Prairie


          g)        Nail burlap or polyethylene to the landside of the flashboards, to prevent wave
                    erosion;

          h)        If desired, use guy ropes from the posts to anchors on the landside;

           i)     Place earth fill on the landside of flashboards.




Use Of Polyethylene

   19.     Polyethylene may be used in conjunction with each type of dyke or capping. The major
           advantage is that it limits erosion of soil fill.

   20.     The footing of the polyethylene should be anchored using about three feet of the total
           width double back under and between the landside sandbags. for example:




21.         The polyethylene should be under the surface of the riverside or sandbags or the
flashboard.
                             Municipal Emergency Plan



        Town of
         High Prairie


22.    On existing dykes the polyethylene may be used to prevent washout. It must be weighted
       down by sandbags, wire or straw bales.

23.    The recommended minimum thickness of polyethylene for dykes or capping is 6-mil. It
       is available in 10-foot width rolls 100 feet long.


Sack Filling Racks

24.    A sack filling rack may be useful in cases where it is necessary to fill a large number of
       sacks and automatic loaders are not available.

POTENTIAL THREATS
         Nuclear, Biological Or Chemical Contamination




  Disaster Service            NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL OR CHEMICAL
CONTAMINATION

INDICATORS AND SUGGESTED INITIAL RESPONE FOR INDIVIDUALS EXPOSED OR
      POTENTIALLY EXPOSED TO NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL OR CHEMICAL
                       CONTAMINATION (CBN)

   The threat of a CBN attack in Alberta is very low. Indeed, the threat of an effective attach is low
   throughout Canada. Even in the U.S., the biological incidents can be better categorized as a
   psychological attach rather than an effective biological attack. However, the possibility of such an
   event occurring in Alberta may exist and it is only prudent that everyone be aware of the threat
   and the appropriate response, in the unlikely event their home, neighborhood or place of work is
   targeted.

   The best defense against a CBN attack is education. The more people are aware of the signs of the
   signs and effects of a CBN attach, the less likely they are to be exposed to the dangers and they
   have a far greater opportunity to survive an event with little or no effect. There are several web
   pages that can provide information ranging from simple from simple guidelines to detailed
   explanation of the delivery modes and effects of CBN substances. Some good examples are
   www.canadapost.ca (General advisory and advice), www.hopkins-biodefecse.org (biological) and
   www.csis-scrs.gc.ca (Overall threat. Go to "Other Documents & Releases" and look for report
   "Chemical, Biological and Nuclear (CBRN) Terrorism" report number 2000/02 [99-12-18]).
   There are many other sites that also provide general information and links to other information
   regarding terrorism or CBN. The RCMP and OCIPEP (Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection
   and Emergency Preparedness - formerly EPC) sites are two good Canadian Government
   information repositories.

   A summary of CBN characteristics are:
          Chemical agents are most often in liquid form and maybe aerosolized. The effects of a
          chemical weapon are most always immediately apparent of will be apparent within a few
          hours. Many, through by no means all, chemical weapons have a strong and distinct odor
          that would not normally be unexpectedly found in most homes or workplaces (bitter
          almonds, peach kernels, freshly cut hay and green grass, for example).

              Biological agents can be in liquid or powder form and are generally odorless and
              colorless. The effects of most biological agents are not usually apparent for several
              hours, and usually not for at least a day.

              Nuclear (radiation) is invisible. While it is that symptoms may appear within hours, the
              dosage required would have to be massive (i.e., available only to very few skilled people
              and extraordinarily unlikely to exist undetected in Canada). Low dose symptoms

              Generally will not appear for at least several days. It is highly unlikely that people will
              be immediately aware they have been exposed to radiation.

Common warning signs of CBN exposure are:
          Unexplained droplets or oily film on surfaces.

               Unusual and unexplained liquid sprays, vapors or powders and/or their delivery
                systems.

               Unusual or unauthorized spraying in an area (e.g., suspect lawn maintenance or a pest
                exterminator showing up unannounced).

               People wearing unusual clothing relative to the weather (e.g., long sleeves, rubber
                raincoats etc. in dry, warm weather).

               Effects on living things in the workplace such as people or animals suddenly becoming
                nauseous, experiencing breathing problems, convulsing, becoming disoriented or
                experiencing unusual illness. In addition, sudden wilting or discoloration of plants or
                discoloration of furniture or equipment are strong indicators of the presence of
                chemical or biological agents.

Listed below are many of the common identifiers of suspicious packages, letters and other items.
The list is a compilation of several such lists as well as information provided by those with special
CBN training. The presence of one or more of the indicators does not mean that the item must be
treated as suspicious - common sense and the acknowledgement that the threat is low must prevail:

               Warnings such as threatening phone calls or letters
               Unexpected deliveries
               Unusual point of origin
               Excessive postage
               Poorly handwritten or typed addresses
               Cut and paste lettering
               Incorrect titles
               Title but no name
               Misspelling of common words
               Oily stains, discoloration or unusual odour
               Vapour or powder release upon opening or found unexpectedly in a mailed item
               Leaking
               Fictitious or no return address
               Excessive weight
               Lopsided or uneven envelope/package/item

                                    Municipal Emergency Plan



              Town of
               High Prairie




              Protruding wires or aluminum foil
              Stiffeners or metallic components in letters or packages
              Small holes in letters or packages
              Excessive security material such as masking tape, string, etc.
              Packages hand-wrapped so that they can only be opened on way
              Noise emitting packages (note that the vast majority of such packages mailed are
               shown to be innocently sent pager, tape recorders or smoke detectors)
              Visual distractions
              Marked with restrictive endorsement like "PERSONAL" or "CONFIDENTIAL"
              The postmark location (city, province, etc.) does not match the return address
              Placement of an unfamiliar and unattended container near a ventilation system

Note: If there is no obvious exposure but concerns remain about a package or item, attempts should
      be made to verify the item with the addressee, sender or owner prior to taking the steps
      below.

Recommended immediate actions for a known or perceived CBN exposure:

              If the package is unopened, do not open it.

              If the indicators came from a package or envelope, immediately cover your mouth and
               nose and place the item down. If possible, place the item in a plastic bag or other
               container to prevent leakage. If no such container exists, cover the item with a
               wastebasket, clothing etc. Do not walk around with the item and do not throw or shake
               it as you will contaminate a large area (tests have shown that the act of opening an
               envelope in a normal fashion can spread a powder 15 feet or more).

              Notify others and evacuate the area. If possible, close all windows and doors and shut
               down ventilation system. While evacuating, cover mouth and nose with a
               handkerchief, sleeve or any available piece of cloth. Call your local emergency
               number (some municipalities or communities may establish a number specifically for
               this threat. If not, call 911 or its equivalent). Note that the operators may ask a series
               of questions that will help decide whether a response by emergency personnel is
               required and if so, an appropriate level of response.

              If at the workplace, also notify building security. Be sure to notify security where you
               are going and if possible provide a phone number (cell or land line) in that location.

              Try to keep those who may be exposed together, and move to the nearest non-exposed
               facility where people can wash. Most biological and chemical agents are heavier than
               air so they will sink to low levels. Therefore, moving up one floor to a washroom
               facility or if outside to a higher piece of ground would be appropriate (If outside
               remain upwind of the contaminated area). Try not to come in contact with other
               people and maintain a list of those potentially exposed.

              As soon as possible, have all people who may have been contaminated thoroughly
               wash all exposed skin with lots of warm, soapy water, ideally by showering.

              If it is obvious that clothing has been contaminated, remove that clothing and place it
               in a container (trash can, bag etc.) and remove the container to location other than
               where those exposed are staying. If shower facilities are available, contaminated
               persons should shower with clothes on then undress while continuing to shower.

              When qualified help arrives, relate exactly what caused you to suspect an exposure
               (e.g., puff of dust that spread around the room or oily spray from the ventilation
               system). If the event was limited to a small area, describe where the item (s)
               containing the possible contaminant are (e.g., and envelope in a plastic bag on the first
               desk on the right). Finally, accept medial treatment of observation, even if you feel
               fine.

This document is intended to assist individuals in the recognition of, and response to, a CBN event.
It cannot be overemphasized that the threat of an effective CBN attack in Alberta is very low and the
threat of an effective widespread attack is almost non-existent. Calm and common sense reactions
will greatly reduce the number of unnecessary calls to emergency responders and will greatly reduce
the sense of anxiety intended by the terrorists and criminals who may use such tactics.

There are many lists and advisories similar to this one and all will differ in some ways. Agencies
such as Canada Post, the RCMP, Alberta Health and Wellness Alberta Solicitor General and Alberta
Disaster Services, as well as individuals with extensive CBN defense training and experience, have
provided advice and/or agree with the contents of this document.

                                       Guiding Principles


      Assume the worst-case scenario until ruled out, then gradually scale back as allowed by
       evidence/information.

      Critical decision-making/response must be local (with advice from "experts" if
       warranted).

      Use all available evidence/information to decide on the course of action.

      There is to be no further exposure (e.g. initial handlers, emergency responders,
       transporters, laboratory personnel, and environment).

                  Determine contents expeditiously but safely. Priority is explosive chemical
                                                            radiological agent biological agent.

      Preserve forensic evidence.

NOTES

                   (Read these notes in conjunction with the attached algorithm.)

Suspicious Package Identified By Member Of The Public
     1.   There are three ways that an event might be identified or suspected.

           a. Declared by the perpetrator. Examples may be:
                 i)     Suspicious package or envelopes containing an alleged biological
                        agent, exposing those who open it or who are in the vicinity.
                 ii)    Alleged exposure of persons in a building confined space or at a large-
                        scale event e.g. sports stadium, to a biological agent through the
                        ventilation system or aerosol route. Unlike a chemical exposure
                        persons would not have immediate symptoms.

           b. Advance indication is received that an event might occur. (Because it has been
              suspected or recognized elsewhere).

           c. No announcement, and hence detection depends upon preparedness and luck.
              Preparedness includes a high index of suspicion to consider that something may
              be unusual, and a willingness to communicate observations that something is or
              may be unusual to colleagues and others.


     2.   The public will access the protocol through
            an emergency responder (police, fire, ambulance),
            an emergency room physician or nurse,
            a laboratory technician, microbiologist, infection control practitioner, infectious
               diseases physician or pathologist,
            a clinician in private practice or a hospital setting.
            public health personnel (Medical Officer of Health, Public Health Nurse, Public
               Health Inspector, etc.),
            a community or hospital pharmacist,
            a private citizen,
            media.

          Call the addressee or the sender to confirm contents of package.

2nd Screen - "Risk Assessment Team"
    4.   "Rick Assessment team" is comprised of the Local Police (lead) and Medical Officer
           of Health and others, as needed e.g. Fire, ambulance, HAZMAT, local Director of
           Disaster Services, Transportation of Dangerous goods.

     5.       The purpose of the 2nd screen is to.
               a. Define suspicious packages (repeat of 1st screen; see note 3).
               b. Determine level of human exposure.

     6.       Pending. RCMP/Solicitor General to determine disposal of package from a criminal
               perspective (2001 10 18).

     7.       Police to determine next steps including disposal; see note 6.

     8.       Onsite explosive triage. Responsibility of local police (see attached algorithm).
