Notice: Wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada

Alberta continues to meet the challenges of the wildfires currently burning in the province. The Fort McMurray fires have affected well over 80,000 people, and a mandatory evacuation of the city has occurred. A number of evacuation centres have been set up around the province to provide evacuees with shelter and other necessities, and many other people are staying with family and friends. The fires continue to burn out of control, but major efforts are being made to contain the fires and ultimately extinguish them.

Trinidad and Tobago nationals who have been working and living in the Fort McMurray area are advised that ALL evacuees (whether staying at hotels, in campgrounds or with family or friends) need to register by calling the Canadian Red Cross at 1-888-350-6070 or online at RedCross.ca. This will ensure officials know how to reach you and verify your safety. Evacuees staying at reception centres can register with reception centre staff.  Family members and evacuees trying to reunite can also contact the Red Cross. Please note due to high call volumes, they may not be able to reach someone right away.

For wildfire related information:

In Alberta, call 310-4455 (toll free), open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.;

Out of province can telephone (+1)-780-427-2711.
