The Joint Local Emergency Response Control Group
The Town of Beausejour and the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead have come together to form The Joint Local Emergency Response Control Group (JLERCG).
Through courses and mock disaster exercises, the JLERCG is continually preparing itself to handle any emergency or disaster that could happen in Beausejour or its surrounding area. Scenarios have been reviewed and resources have been inventoried over the last few years to keep the Emergency Plan up-to-date.
Meetings for the JLERCG are held quarterly. Meetings are attended by the Municipal Emergency Coordinator (MEC), two members of the Town of Beausejour Council, two members of the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead Council and the Chief Administrative Officers of both municipalities.
The Town of Beausejour is represented by:
Councillor Jan Leclerc
Councillor Glen Kaatz
The Rural Municipality of Brokenhead is represented by:
Councillor Luke Ingeberg
Councillor Jack Kowalkchuk
BBEM meetings are held bi-monthly on the odd numbered months. These meetings are open to the public and those individuals looking to volunteer are more than welcome to attend. For confirmation on meeting dates, times and venue, contact Mike Tomasson at 204.268.6705.
