    If a mandatory evacuation is issued we remind residents that this action is for your safety, rescue services including ambulance and fire may not be able to reach you or your family in a timely manner or at all.

    Events of this nature can leave you stranded without access to basic services including heat, clean water, power, food, medicine and timely access to information.

    No evacuation orders or emergency advisories are in effect at this time although the situation can change rapidly. People self-evacuating can contact the Forty Mile Emergency Social Services at 403-545-2200.
