Crowsnest Pass emergency aid for Fort McMurray
The Director of Emergency Management and the Manager of Protective Services continue to be updated daily in regards to the ongoing tragedy in Fort McMurray. Earlier this week, the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass offered to send a Type 1 and Type 6 brush truck plus crews and are presently on a deployment list with the Provincial Operations Centre.
An operational plan has been developed to ensure adequate coverage for the Crowsnest Pass is maintained.
It is important to note that the Provincial Operations Center is the lead agency for deployment and we remain in a state of readiness awaiting a deployment call. The Manager of Protective Service and his staff are reviewing states of readiness and maintaining vigilance at this time. During this waiting period, our FireSmart team will continue their work with the Vegetation Management program.
