As you are aware forest fires have impacted our province and communities where IUOE members work and live. In Williams Lake and the surrounding area it is estimated that there are more than 600 members from Locals 115,882 & 959 who have been temporarily displaced. The long term impact is unknown at this time. Several Local 882 members have stayed in town to ensure the fire hall remained open and that pumping stations, generators and heavy equipment are available for use when needed. They are committed to keeping critical city services running as long as possible.
Local 963’s Officers have approved a donation to assist fellow IUOE members similar to the donation made to assist in last years wildfires at Fort McMurray Alberta, at $10 per member.
