Government of New Brunswick

Brunswick Alpha 2018 is a province wide emergency preparedness exercise planned for June 2018 in New Brunswick.

This one-day exercise will give communities, municipalities and local service districts an opportunity to practise their respective roles during an emergency event.

All New Brunswick communities are invited to participate and take advantage of this learning opportunity in emergency response planning.


The exercise scenario will revolve around a progressive severe weather event unfolding across the province. Advanced weather reporting, simulated social media, and web-based news reporting will add to the realism of the experience.
