Requesting SPSA Assistance

If you are a responding agency, such as a municipality or a First Nation, and need assistance from the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency, please complete the SPSA Request for Assistance form and submit it to the nearest Protection Area Office.

Guidance

The SPSA can provide assistance to local authorities responding to an emergency. The local authority will retain responsibility for the emergency unless it is turned over to the SPSA in writing.

All requests for assistance will be assessed. SPSA resources are managed at the provincial level and deployed based on need and availability.

If air support is required, agency staff will control the air operations until aircraft are no longer needed.

Eligibility

Responding agencies, including municipalities and First Nations, can request SPSA assistance once mutual aid agreements are exhausted.

The SPSA will consider cost recovery of expenses for all assistance outside of its jurisdiction. Current provincial aircraft rates are provided on the SPSA website.
