Members of the Calgary Fire Department were called out to help with a number of incidents on the Bow and Elbow Rivers where both people and animals had gotten into trouble. #MoreThanFires
A man was taken to hospital Tuesday morning after a fire broke out in a trailer in a commercial yard in northeast Calgary. One firefighter also sustained minor injuries while fighting the blaze, and was treated at the scene by paramedics.
A Calgary firefighter rescued a woman and her dog after they were trapped on a steep embankment and cliff area above the Elbow River. #MoreThanFires
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. #MoreThanFires #WaterSafety #yyc
