EDMONTON, Alta. — Alberta Transportation has received an award of merit for its part in assisting in the cleanup efforts following last year’s devastating Pine Lake tornado.

The award, give to the department as part of the National Transportation Week festivities, was presented by the National Transportation Week Association and the Northern Alberta Transportation Club.

“The department’s Dangerous Goods Control and Inspection Services branches did an outstanding job in the face of this devastating crisis,” says Minister of Transportation Ed Stelmach. “Their efforts helped eliminate additional dangers at the tornado site.”

Alberta Transportation representatives assisted in traffic control and helped scour the area for dangerous goods. They also aided survivors and patiently fielded hundreds of phone calls from the public and the media.
