Community Planning and Emergency Response

Alberta Fire Services Toolkit

Community Planning and Emergency Response

In July 2018, the AFCA initiated the “Alberta Fire Services Toolkit – Community Planning and Emergency Response” and contracted Transitional Solutions Inc. (TSI) to conduct a survey and create a guidance framework to support Alberta’s Fire Services.


In-person, telephone & web-based surveys of Fire Services in communities of less than 20,000 will be completed by TSI & Banister Research.

Guidance Framework

Survey data will be used to develop a framework of recommendations for service levels and training standards in Alberta.


Once developed, the framework will be presented to the AFCA membership at the Annual General Meeting in May 2019.

Take the Survey!

Calling all Fire Chiefs! If the community you serve has a population of 20,000 or less, we want to hear from you!

Our online survey is now live. Banister Research will be e-mailing you with a link and PIN to take the survey soon. If you do not receive your email, please contact us at [email protected] to request a copy of the survey.

TSI or Banister may also contact you to participate in an in-person or telephone survey. We look forward to talking to you further about Alberta’s Fire Services.
