Statement from Crystal McAteer, Mayor of High Level
First, of all, I would like to reassure the citizens that the Town of High Level has been fully evacuated. Our amazing fire crews are doing everything possible to protect the properties, the homes and the community.
The RCMP is doing a fantastic job patrolling the town site and ensuring only those people who need to be in our community are allowed inside.
The High Level Fire Department has deployed sprinklers along the southwest side of town, and are now switching their attention to the north side.
I truly appreciate the safe and orderly evacuation that occurred yesterday, and the total cooperation I observed.
I want to thank the surrounding communities for welcoming the people of High Level and area to their communities. You have helped make the evacuation as smooth and painless as possible.
I have some concerns about the residents of White Spruce Village. So far, only two seniors have registered at the evacuation centres. If you know where other seniors are, please call the front desk at 780-926-2201.
I am also concerned about the pets some people left at home, in their garages and back yards, when they evacuated. We have volunteers who can check on your pets and ensure they are safe, watered and fed.
Thank you to the amazing volunteers in High Level and the surrounding area who called and offered help. I greatly appreciate your kind offers.
Please contact the Town of High Level at 780 926-2201 to register, tell us where the seniors are located or indicate if you left a pet behind. I look forward to providing a further update on the situation tomorrow.
