For the Town of High Level and the residents immediately surrounding,
We are still working towards getting you home this weekend. We have no firm timelines, and ask you to remain patient as we work hard on this plan. We will continue to give you updates as they come in.
The Town of High Level is still ok.
Firefighters, RCMP officers, Security and many others are working hard to keep things safe and protect your town.
Despite the very aggressive fire spread in the last 24 to 48 hours, we remain focused on dealing with the fire and planning for the re-entry of residents. This is starting with the essential services. Safety remains the Number 1 priority for the re-entry criteria.
Starting today, hospital staff from the Northwest Health Centre will be returning to prepare the High Level hospital when the community reopens.
Thick smoke continues to be a challenge in the area now and for the foreseeable future. For the most up to date information, visit the Province of Alberta’s air quality index page.
