Alberta Structure Protection Program Operational Guidelines

The Alberta Structure Protection Program Operational Guidelines provide standards and procedures related to:

▪ Structure protection personnel positions.
▪ Training and qualification standards.
▪ Deployment procedures.
▪ Reimbursement guidelines.
▪ Safety and emergency procedures.
▪ Program maintenance and revision.
▪ Structure protection technical and administrative templates.

This document defines the Structure Protection Program operating procedures and standards. The goal of the Program is to strengthen the capacity for Provincial structure protection while providing flexibility to deploy trained and capable resources with clear rules of engagement and reimbursement requirements.

The Alberta Office of the Fire Commissioner will administer and manage the structure protection program.

This is a living document and will be reviewed on an annual basis by representatives from the Alberta Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC), Alberta Wildfire Management Branch (WMB), and the Alberta Fire Chiefs Association (AFCA) with the revised version being prepared prior to March 1 of each year.
