Emergency Social Services (Year-Round)

Contact: Leanne Pelletier at lpelletier@town.jasper.ab.ca

The Municipality is responsible for Emergency Social Services (ESS) in Jasper. During an active emergency, Municipal staff and volunteers are tasked with taking care of the people affected by it. 

ESS takes into consideration people’s food, shelter, transportation, health and safety needs. This includes considerations for people who do not speak English and people with physical or mental disabilities. Pets are also an important consideration. The Municipality of Jasper has more information on emergency preparedness and ESS here
