Forest Protection Division

Protecting Alberta's forests and forest communities by preventing and suppressing wildfires is a top priority of Sustainable Resource Development's Forest Protection Division.

Over the years Alberta has become a recognized leader in the area of fire management, planning, prevention and suppression. Backed by a wealth of technology and equipment, the department is able to effectively manage wildfires in the province.

By placing a high priority on prevention, detection, pre-suppression and initial attack programs, SRD will continue to provide Albertans with leading-edge forest protection services.

Forest Protection is a division of Alberta Sustainable Resource Development. Forest Protection contains 5 branches, and 10 Wildfire Management Areas.

Waterways Wildfire Management Area protects and manages 60 810 square kilometers of northern boreal forest and Canadian Shield, stretching from north central Alberta to the Northwest Territories. The primary settlement areas in the WMA are Fort McMurray, Saprae Creek, Gregoire Lake, Anzac, Fort McKay, Fort Chipewyan and Fort Fitzgerald. Recreational developments include Gregoire Lake Provincial Park, Maqua Lake, Dore Lake, Engrstrom Lake, Richardson Backcountry as well as 5 remote rec sites on the Clearwater River. The area is a region of startling contrasts, encompassing both vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and one of the fastest growing industrial communities in Canada. Fort McMurray is one of Canada's youngest, fastest growing and most vibrant places - a close knit community of over 58 000 residents. It also has some of the most beautiful lakes famous for fresh water fishing, many of them only accessible by float plane or helicopter. Due to the vast area, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) saw the need to create a regional emergency operations centre (REOC) that would coordinate response efforts to emergencies such as wildfires. Forest Protection Division (FPD) is one of many agencies that are committed to protecting life, property and the environment.
