Hello Brother and Sisters,

Over the last few days, our Members in Fort McMurray are facing another crisis as an ice jam has caused flooding in the Rural Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB). There are now mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders in effect depending on where our members live in the area. We will continue to update this page to keep our Members informed.

Members are advised to download the Alberta Emergency Alert App and watch the local news to stay up to date on the status of the flood:
