Membership Advisory: Fort McMurray Evacuation

The AMA is following the events in Fort McMurray closely. Our hearts and minds are with the community of Fort McMurray and those affected. We send our thanks to the first responders currently working to control the situation and to those assisting with evacuation efforts.

We recently received updates from representatives of both the Oil Sands Discovery Centre and the Fort McMurray Historical Society. We are relieved and thankful to report that our colleagues at both sites, and their families, are safe and accounted for. 

We encourage you to stay up to date on the situation by visiting alberta.ca/emergency.cfm. To find out how you can help, visit cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/events/fort-mcmurray-how-to-help
