Emergency Social Services

Emergency Social Services (ESS) is an emergency response program provided by Leduc Family and Community Support Services (FCSS). We partner with local, regional, provincial and federal authorities, support organizations, and community volunteers. For additional information about Emergency Social Services, please call 780-980-7109.

We provide services to those affected by large, complex disasters or emergencies, so that they can start getting their lives back. In some cases, ESS may be provide for smaller emergencies such as a single house fire.

  • Clothing
  • Lodging

To be prepared for an evacuation, residents can set themselves up online through the MyAlberta Emergency Registration System (MAERS) or call the Government of Alberta call centre (310-4455) to register over the phone. The information collected through the online registration system is to support Alberta families who have had to leave their homes during an emergency evacuation and help them to quickly get access to government services. The MAERS helps government and local municipalities monitor the number of families registered and assess emergency social service needs to support recovery efforts.
