The annual Disaster Alley planned for May 7, 2016 has been postponed.
The decision to postpone is a result of the wildfire situation in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.
The priority is supporting our municipal partners and ensuring we have the necessary personnel or equipment available to respond if the request is made.
Building a culture of preparedness is important. The event will be rescheduled and the public will be notified.
