RMWB Wildfire Recovery Information

“Post-incident assessments are essential to being better prepared for the future. In every incident, there are opportunities for learning and the Horse River Wildfire is no different. We are committed to reviewing the Government of Alberta reports by KMPG and MNP and working with them to improve our region’s emergency preparedness.

“The Horse River Wildfire was an unprecedented event with respect to both scale and rate of change. It is critical for us as a Municipality to have a complete understanding of the events leading up to the evacuation, which is why we’ve requested that KPMG focus on the initial response as part of our ongoing review. We want to ensure that we learn as much as possible from this experience so that the Municipality can be better prepared and that the learnings can be shared to help municipalities across Alberta and beyond prepare for emergencies.”

– Jody Butz, Fire Chief, Regional Emergency Services
