During a state of local emergency, City Council empowers the Chestermere Emergency Management Agency (CHEMA) in our city to make the decisions they deem necessary to protect our community. Orders are reviewed by a legal team and supported by City Council. Check out this page for a list of which level of government looks after each components of a pandemic. CHEMA is led by the Director of Emergency Management (DEM) who signs all Orders. All communities must have such a position and such a person must be trained and experienced in the position. In Chestermere’s case, the Director of Emergency Management also happens to be the City’s CAO. At this time, he is working full-time on both positions.
