Wildfire Anxiety

Posted on

With the current high temperatures, we recognize that many people may start to feel a bit of stress relating to last year's evacuations and wildfire events. 

While the Wildfire Danger is now set at High, at this time there are no wildfires burning in our zone. You can get the latest updates at https://srd.web.alberta.ca/edson-area-update.

What our community experienced last year was a stressful situation and can have a lasting impact. We encourage everyone to be kind to yourselves, and take some time to manage your stress levels. 

AHS has some great resources to deal with stress and related conditions.
