In Saskatchewan, the Ministry of Corrections, Public Safety and Policing is the lead agency for the province on public safety and security. It works closely with local authorities, as well as the federal and other provincial and territorial governments, to share information and develop emergency plans and strategies to ensure the safety and security of our communities.
The two most common natural and human-caused risks and hazards that occur in Saskatchewan are floods and wild land fires. The province is also exposed to other risks and hazards, such as blizzards, droughts and tornadoes. The above information is found in "Your Emergency Preparedness Guide".

Emergency Operations Centre (EOC)
In June 2023 the City of Warman adopted a new Emergency Measures Bylaw (2023-07) to establish the policies and procedures for emergency planning as set out in the Emergency Planning Act. Located in the Warman fire station, the EOC is the centralized location where City Council, staff, and emergency operation personnel meet to address, mitigate, and resolve emergencies affecting the city during and following a disaster. The EOC is designed to operate during major emergencies for 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be staffed within minutes if needed.
City Council has introduced the City of Warman Voyent! Emergency Alert system designed to keep residents safe and well-informed in times of crisis.
