This notice is to inform you that Long Plain Chief and Council have declared a state of emergency due to the ongoing drug crisis amongst our tribal membership. The community has been negatively impacted by the increased number of deaths caused by drug overdose as drug abuse is on the rise.

The utmost priority of Chief and Council is the health and well-being of tribal membership.

Chief and Council has established a committee with the responsibility to prioritize the exchange of knowledge and coordinate the action to preserve life and directly address the issue of drug crisis within our community.

Chief and Council extend a call for action for assistance and solidarity from all levels of government and all First Nations as we combat the drug crisis

Manitoba First Nation Police Service and First Nation Security Officers will be working collaboratively to provide security to the community. If you are leaving for an extended period of time, please notify the First Nation Security Supervisor so they can patrol your area while you are away.
