The Alberta Health Services community health centre on Bremner Avenue was evacuated at about 7:30 a.m. on Thursday as a precaution due to a carbon monoxide alarm.

Red Deer Emergency Services quickly responded to the alarm at Red Deer Community Health Centre at 2845 Bremner Ave.

AHS said it was working with emergency services and AHS maintenance teams to determine the cause and to complete repairs as soon as possible.

“The safety of our staff and clients is paramount. Therefore, at this time, the facility remains closed,” said a statement from AHS on Thursday.

“We are working to find alternative arrangements for staff to complete necessary clinical operations and are working to contact those who had appointments at the facility today to rebook their appointments.”
