Trucking groups scramble for order amid Fort Mac wildfire
FORT McMURRAY, AB - Lorraine Card, executive director of the Alberta Motor Transport Association, says she is beginning to reach out to her membership in Fort McMurray Wednesday to see how the association can help in the face of the worst wildfires Alberta has ever seen. Diversified Transportation Ltd., Trimac Transportation, and Manitoulin Transport are a few of the fleets Card is checking in on. "It's a terrible situation, and we do intend to reach out to our members there this morning," says Card. "We've been following closely on the radio, and our main concern is that people get out safely. We have to work closely with the authorities to see what we can do."
