Fort McKay Chief, Council ask residents to stay put until safe to return

Fort McKay Chief and Council are asking people to not return to the community for the time being to ensure the safety of all Fort McKay members.

While Fort McKay First Nation was not in immediate danger with the most recent evacuation of the camps north of Fort McMurray, many members of the community had already left the area.

Communications Director Rose Mueller says through email the Chief and Council are asking community members to remain where they are until they can be certain the area is safe and the highways are open.

Mueller confirmed there are still members in the community and there is a contingency plan in place that, if needed, residents can be evacuated either by land, air or water.
