Disasters represent serious events that threaten or cause widespread losses and damage, and disrupt social structure and essential functions. The County of Minburn Emergency Plan ensures that activities related to the mitigation of the disaster are coordinated between the various agencies involved (fire, ambulance, police) and provides strategies necessary to manage the incident.

The overall command and control of a disaster event would occur from the County of Minburn Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) located at the County Administration Building.
