T hrough its various departments, the County provides a spectrum of services to community and industry stakeholders including emergency and response planning advice and support, public awareness and prevention program support, and emergency preparedness planning guidance. Alberta’s Emergency Management Act mandates local authorities to prepare for and respond to disasters that occur within their boundaries, establishing authority for a local emergency management program. A bylaw should describe the local structure, authorize the Municipal Emergency Plan and outline any mutual aid arrangements with neighbouring local authorities. The Emergency Management team will then work with municipal partners to develop response strategies to regional events. Rural Addressing System Rural addressing is a standardized system of identifying and locating rural properties. In 2002, Lac Ste. Anne County began putting into effect a municipal rural addressing system for use by emergency service providers — Fire, RCMP and Ambulance services — and for other purposes such as providing directions for delivery services. The Rural Addressing System is a street address that works much like street addresses in an urban town or city. Our range roads, which run north and south, correspond to streets, and our township roads, which run east and west, correspond to avenues. The rural address for a property is based on the distance from the road junction to the south or east of the driveway (called the reference road, whether built or not), to the point a property’s driveway meets a public road (called the access road). A County rural address then consists of the reference road number, access interval number and access road. In Lac Ste. Anne County, rural addresses are not mailing addresses and do not replace your legal land description. It is critical that emergency responders locate your home or business in times of emergencies in the County. As such, it’s important to have proper signage for your property if you require Fire, RCMP or Ambulance services. Make sure that your signs are visible. If you do not have a rural address sign, you can pick up an application form at the County office, or print a copy from LSAC.ca/Rural- Addressing-Resources. Bylaw 15-2002, the Municipal Addressing System Bylaw requires that all parcels of land supporting residential, commercial and industrial development, with a primary access onto a developed public road right-of-way, be assigned an address by the County and such address must be posted — with the exception of oil and gas industry development which is regulated by the AEUB. Please contact the County office to obtain your rural address. You should have the following information available: legal 15.
