Read our full Privacy Policy for the Emergency Business Contact Database here.

The Calgary Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) plans and coordinates emergency services and resources during major emergencies and disasters. CEMA works with other City departments, corporations, communities and non-profit agencies to increase Calgary’s capacity to be prepared for and recover more quickly from a disaster.

You will receive no marketing material, ever – this information will be used to relay emergency information.

From time to time we may reach out to ensure contact information is up to date or to test the system.

The contact information being collected is being kept in a separate and secure database and will not be sold or shared to any third party.

The Calgary Chamber, in its role as an emergency partner to CEMA, has sole access to the data, and will use it only for business–related emergency, disaster and recovery information.

We urge any southern Alberta business, large or small, and especially those in Calgary, to sign up the appropriate person(s) for relevant alerts. Please share this page with important contacts.

Develop a Business Continuity Plan with the help of CEMA’s Business Continuity Handbook.
