· The Fort McMurray wildfire remains out of control. It is estimated to cover 522,892 hectares, including 2,496 hectares in Saskatchewan. There are 1,934 firefighters, 102 helicopters, 255 pieces of heavy equipment and 25 air tankers currently battling the fires.
· A preliminary re-entry plan has been established and it is anticipated that residents can begin going home June 1. A voluntary, phased re-entry is planned. There is a ban on random camping on public lands in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The ban will ensure that first responders can continue to focus on existing wildfires and reduce the need for them to respond to other fire situations. All mandatory evacuations remain in place except in approved circumstances.
· The situation remains unpredictable and highway conditions are subject to change, Highways 63 and 881 are open to travel both northbound and southbound. An RCMP traffic control post has been set up monitoring northbound traffic at the “ oversize load rest “ area and any essential services travelling to Fort McMurray requires a PERMIT at this traffic post. Workers who have been asked to return to oil sands sites north of Fort McMurray can use Highway 63. Anyone seeking to retrieve a vehicle abandoned along Highway 63 or Highway 881 should call 310-4455.
