To our residents:
We know you want to get back into your homes and communities.
We know it’s extremely difficult and frustrating being away longer than anticipated.
You’re lives have been disrupted and it’s very unsettling not to have all the answers.
But our top priority is to keep you and your loved ones safe. The fire outside town limits remains extremely dangerous, volatile and out of control.
So far the winds have been helping the fire stay away from the Town of High Level and Mackenzie County homes. That’s helping the firefighters work on the fire safely.
But on Sunday, winds are shifting and will be creating a new challenge for the firefighters.
This is why the mandatory evacuation remains in place indefinitely.
Please stay alert and patient while we see how things progress and work with fire officials to determine when you can go home - safely.
Please continue to pray that the people involved continue to stay safe and that we have favourable weather over the coming days.
We have your backs. Let’s fight this thing together.
