Fort McMurray Fires - Volunteers Thank You! Featured

Fort Mac Fires - Thank YouI just wanted to personally reach out and say thank you for all that you did for the firefighters in Fort McMurray during the fires.

My family lives in Lacombe and my husband is a firefighter in Red Deer, we are both avid motorcycle riders and are so very touched by the support the motorcycle clubs provided during the fires in Fort Mac. 

Fort Mac Fires - Thank You

We had heard stories from the crews that were on the ground in Fort Mac of the kindness that your group had shown them during that time. The first hot meals they received was from you and your volunteers. Until yesterday when my husband and I came across your video on YouTube no one knew who to thank, so please pass along this email to anyone who was part of the motorcycle community that helped support the firefighters in Fort Mac. 

Firefighting is a way of life in our family, my husband is a firefighter and so is my brother inlaw and my 12 year old son has already said that that’s what he wants to be when he grows up. It is a sacrifice that many don’t understand, the sleepless nights of worrying or the dreaded phone call in the middle of the night we all prey to never hear. To know that there are people in the community that rally to support them is something that I am so very grateful for! 

Again many thanks to all of you! You walked into that fire with our husbands and brothers when everyone was running away!

We ride with the IAFF 6th District Motorcycle Group and I would like to organize and thank you bike rally and BBQ this summer for the firefighters in Alberta and would like to extend the invitation to all the motorcycle clubs and members that supported the brothers and sisters in Fort McMurray and especially the Nomads Red Deer Chapter as they were so critical in the relief efforts. We are in the early planning stages and I wanted to see if you would be able to help put the word out and see if that is something that’s something we could make happen. 

Fort Mac Fires - Thank You

Kind Regards,
Janeen Wawin
