A Calgary firefighter rescued a woman and her dog after they were trapped on a steep embankment and cliff area above the Elbow River.
Our thoughts are with the two people injured in this fire. Along with fighting the fire, multiple fire crews need to focus efforts to search and evacuate homes at early morning fires because most people are still sleeping. Seconds count.
Please remember, working smoke detectors save lives.
We are glad all of these rafters were wearing life jackets and we could get to them in time to rescue them from the water. This is a good reminder to always wear a life jacket, have all the appropriate equipment, and be very careful of bridge abutments and other hazards while enjoying our beautiful rivers. #WaterSafety #yyc
Calgary fire crews responded to an unusual incident in the Beltline Wednesday morning, and it has prompted a reminder about the “potentially deadly” dangers of high winds.
Crews needed to call a second-alarm to help contain a house fire in the city's northwest early Saturday.
Seconds matter. We are glad our crews could respond in time to stop this fire from engulfing these two homes.
Reminder, please properly dispose of cigarette butts. They are the most common source of fires that start outside of homes. #yyc
