The Fort McMurray wildfire has now covered 80,000 hectares of area and displaced nearly 100,000 people and destroyed over 1600 structures and there is no sign of it slowing. Experts are saying that we must depend now on the weather to stop it, meaning much less wind and a stop to the hot, dry weather the area has been experiencing. wildfire-road

With emergency workers working tirelessly and so many people currently displaced and many more evacuating as I write this there are numerous ways we ourselves can help.

  1. Donate to the Red Cross
  2. Edmonton Food Bank
