Some improvement in weather conditions and wildfire over the weekend.

News we have all been eagerly awaiting to hear. Cooler, damper conditions have improved both the firefighting of the Beast as well as the air quality in the region. We continue to be under mandatory evacuation, with a conditional, phased and voluntary return to the community beginning June 1.

Our Operations leaders have continued to be in contact with their crews throughout this event, providing updates and information as they become available. They are also in contact with our clients regularly to ensure we are ready to get back to business supporting their needs and expanding our abilities in providing any new services they may require.

We are grateful for your continued support and patience during this difficult time. Our priority continues to be our employees, and we are committed to returning you as soon as possible.

Standing Shoulder to Shoulder.

When someone asked me how things were and I complained about the garbage bag I forgot to take out from our kitchen on the afternoon of the evac and how bad it might smell when I got back and I looked across the room and saw one of my colleagues, head down, working hard to restore service at Tuccaro Group, I had a moment of realization. He had lost his home, all of his belongings, didn’t know where he would be living 4 months from now. Then I told myself to smarten up and carried on working hard to support Tuccaro Group. It’s people like that that I am proud to work along side and will do everything I can to support.

This is our community.

As our non-local counterparts grabbed their equipment and fled south to safety, TUC’S rounded their fleet and drove into the fire engulfed North to protect our community.

A message from Tuccaro Human Resources:

The tragic events that have taken place over the last few weeks have affected us all. Some of our own Tuccaro employees, as well as many of our friends and families have suffered significant losses. Some of us will be able to return to our houses that are still standing, but many have no house to return to. During this very difficult time, please know that we are here to help and support you.

Personal Support:

The fires and evacuation in Fort McMurray will affect us all in different ways. It is perfectly normal to feel stressed, anxious and traumatized by the events that took place and are ongoing. All employees and their families who would like mental health support during this difficult time should contact our EFAP provider Shepell at their 24/7 Crisis line set up for Fort McMurray residents at 1-844-751-2133 or visit www.Shepell.com.

Financial Support:

In addition to the funds provided by the Red Cross and debit cards provided by the government of Alberta, there will be other resources available to those who have suffered losses.
For those with insurance please see the information available here:

For those without insurance, you will be taken care of. Alberta Works is providing an emergency allowance for those who require it. Details can be found here:


The Wildfire Evacuee Transitional Accommodation benefit (WETA) is available to evacuees who do not have insurance or who have insufficient insurance to pay for temporary accommodation costs in Alberta. The benefit covers rent, damage deposit and utility connections for up to 90 days from the date of evacuation. Details can be found here:
