The city of Fort McMurray, Alberta is burning. Wildfires have decimated the area, and there are reports that in some areas 80% of homes have been destroyed.

Residents were evacuated with little notice, and have described the scene as ‘post-apocalyptic’. Indeed the imagery coming out of Fort Mac looks like it could be from a book cover or movie poster. This is all too real however, and it underscores the importance of being prepared for emergency situations for you and your family.

The Red Cross is accepting donations, and the Canadian government has agreed to match funds raised, so if you can, donate to help out your fellow humans.
