Local Fire Crews to Fort McMurray

Posted: 2016 May 6th

A second platoon of Mountain View County fire fighters will be heading up to Fort McMurray today (May 6) and tomorrow (May 7). A total of 21 crew members from the Olds, Carstairs, Sundre, Cremona and Didsbury departments will comprise the platoon.

They will relieve the existing 13 member MVC crew that is scheduled to come home later this evening. No additional fire apparatus will be taken to Fort McMurray.

The personnel situation among the departments in the local municipalities has been determined to be adequate to allow the 21 member deployment.
In addition to the fire personnel, many local emergency services personnel have registered with the provincial government to provide services if required.

The County is also asking people wishing to help with the efforts in Fort McMurray to consider donating to the Red Cross relief campaign.
Our thoughts continue to be with the residents of the affected area and our gratitude is with all the emergency responders involved.
