Remembering the 2013 June flood; response, recovery and the road ahead - Calgary Fire Department

Ready for any emergency.

Deputy Chief Ken Uzeloc and Acting Fire Chief during the 2013 floods, explains how the Calgary Fire Department (CFD) was able to respond to not only to the flood, but a train bridge collapse, two-alarm fires and other emergencies to help ensure public safety throughout the city.

The CFD responds to emergencies every day and regularly trains and prepares for disasters, big or small, with all its partners, so that when the flood waters rolled into Calgary last June, they were ready. From helping Calgarians escape the flood waters, to securing hippos and train derailments, and, of course, putting out fires, the CFD worked hard to keep us safe.

With the first year anniversary of the flood coming up, Deputy Chief Uzeloc and the CFD are taking the time to look ahead and be prepared, as always, for the next emergency.
