Residents of Fort McMurray and the surrounding Wood Buffalo Regional District were the victims of “the Beast”, a huge wildfire that burned out of control in the northern Alberta municipality in May 2016. The entire town of Fort McMurray and many surrounding areas were evacuated as the fire destroyed many of the homes in the city.
It was a monumental effort by many volunteers, first responders and corporations to safely house, feed and evacuate thousands of residents.
Novamen donated $10,000.00 dollars to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal in support of the victims of the Fort McMurray fire. We have the privilege of working with many companies in the Oilsands and community of Fort McMurray and our thoughts go out to all of the families, business owners and first responders that have been affected by these fires.
