Wildfire Information for Members, Permit Holders, Applicants & Others

The wildfire danger in northern Alberta continues to be extreme, made all the worse by the warm, dry weather our province is experiencing. When we posted this item, the situation was changing constantly. At least 10,000 people remained out of their homes, many in High Level and area. Slave Lake, ravaged by fire in 2011, was under an eight-hour evacuation notice.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone affected by these fires.

If you are a member, permit holder, or applicant in one of the wildfire areas, we have important information to share.
