Covid 19 and Our Environment

We're doing our part…

We have acquired a large 48’ Self-sustained environmentally-conscious Crew Unit. This Emergency Response Crew Unit comes complete with living quarters for up to 8 crew members. This mobile barracks comes complete with sleeping quarters, washroom and shower, a full kitchen as well as a large generator and holding tanks. Not only does this give us the ability to stay self–sufficient and away from the larger camps—lessening the risk of exposure to Covid-19 or any other illness—it also gives us the ability to stage closer to the fire/job site. This allows for an more immediate response while logistically cutting down travel expenses to and from location at the site, in turn saving costs for the vendor. Having this mobile unit also gives us the capability to Mobilize and Demobilize in a fast, effective and efficient manner. It gives us the ability to relocate in minimal time for any reason, whether that be a change in fire conditions, logistical orders or what have you.

We are also very excited to introduce our new custom build high volume long range structural protection sprinklers for greater coverage distance with the need for fewer sprinklers. These 1 ½” and 2” custom built sprinklers each have a radius of 50-80 meters and are ideal for large scale structural protection projects.

Catastrophic Events In the Last Decade

“The highest-ever loss for a single year was $5.1 billion in 2016. Of the $5.1 billion, $3.8 billion was a result of the Fort McMurray wildfire in northern Alberta, which forced the evacuation of more than 80,000 people. The fire destroyed or damaged over 2,500 homes, buildings and thousands of vehicles, resulting in about 60,000 claims.

“Milestone losses of the past decade include hailstorms in Alberta during the summer of 2014 that cost insurers $558 million. They also include the Slave Lake fire of 2011 that ravaged a remote area of Alberta, causing $573 million in insured losses.”†

Personnel Deployed
In the past three years, over 3000 personnel have been mobilized per year in order to fight catastrophic wildland fires in Canada. Wildcat Fire Services has had a role in almost all major wildland fires in Western Canada since 2011.
