Re: Fort McMurray disaster

From:  Alex Forrest, President UFFW


Attention all Firefighters-We have had numerous requests and enquiries by our members to go out to assist our Fort McMurray brothers and sisters but please do not self-deploy.  We have been in contact with The Firefighters there and if they need assistance they will request and then we will manage the request accordingly.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the residents there and all Emergency workers.
