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.
