The following photos do not in the least bit describe the destruction and devastation that the flood waters of June 20, 2013 caused in Calgary and Southern Alberta.
As a retired member of the Calgary Police Service, we were called to assist in the Emergency Operations Centre. What a tremendously well organized site. All Emergency Services were working seamlessly side by side. I want to mention that the employees of the City and other Agencies (power, gas, sewers, waterworks, etc) who do not often receive accolades have all been unbelievably incredible putting in hours upon hours to ensure that the City can get back to operational as quickly as possible.
The call went out for volunteers to attend McMahon Stadium to sign up for whatever assistance was required to help. The request was for 600 and thousands showed up with more putting their names down over the internet.
I am very proud to be a Calgarian, Albertan and Canadian.
