The City of Steinbach first adopted an "Emergency Plan" in 1989, together with the R.M. of Hanover. The Emergency Plan covers emergency situations such as hazardous product fires & spills, explosive hazards, dangerous goods, winter storm hazards, and severe summer storms.

The City has developed an Emergency Operations Centre as part of the Steinbach Fire Hall.
The City of Steinbach has an Emergency Operations Centre Team of 16 people. The Team is responsible for implementing the Emergency Plan to prevent or limit the loss of life, harm or damage to the safety, health or welfare of people, damage to property or the environment when an emergency grows beyond the day to day emergency situations normally handled by the Fire Department, Police, Ambulance and/or Public Works. Regular training and excercises are held to test and enhance the emergency plan and our response.
If you are interested in volunteering on the Emergency Operations Centre Team, please contact City Hall at 225 Reimer Avenue, 204-326-9877.
