Attached is an AHS document for FAQ regarding Ft McMurray wildfires – fyi.
We have touched base with our Hospital and Community Locals in Ft Mac – sounds like everyone is accounted for and out of the city. Some Nurses are north of Ft Mac in camps… some are providing triage and working around the clock. 25,000 residents are north of Ft Mac and being evacuated over the next 2 to 3 days… there is fear the fires will turn north and those people will be trapped. So the priority is to move those people out. Things sound pretty critical… this is far from over.
Our thoughts are with all residents and citizens and our Nurses and we are waiting for all to get out safe.
