Alberta to honour flood heroes
EDMONTON — Alberta is looking for some flood heroes.
Premier Alison Redford says her government wants to recognize those who went above and beyond the call to help during the June floods that devastated parts of southern Alberta.
Anyone with a story to tell about local officials, public servants or neighbours who stepped up with extraordinary efforts can submit it online to the government website.
Starting next year those heroes will be recognized in their communities.
Details on how they will be recognized will be rolled out in the coming months.
The floods forced tens of thousands to flee their homes in and around High River and Calgary, and caused billions of dollars in damage to roads, homes, bridges and businesses.
