SaskEnergy and the Red Cross
When the Fort McMurray fires happened, SaskEnergy was asked by the Red Cross to put out a call
for donations in order to aid the relief efforts and together we raised over $14,000 for the
Fort McMurray victims. But this isn't the first time that natural disasters have affected Canadian
communities nor is it the first time that SaskEnergy has aided the Red Cross in their disaster relief
Just last year we had the wild fires that ravaged Northern Saskatchewan and before that, in 2011, we saw
both the Wollaston Lake Fire and the flooding in Southern Saskatchewan.
In 2010 we had the tornado that affected the Kawacatoose First Nation. During all these events the Red Cross sought aid for those affected
by the disasters and SaskEnergy was more than willing to give it, in the form of donations, volunteers and supplies.

SaskEnergy has a long and worthwhile history of working with the Red Cross in times of disaster; and while we hope
these and other disasters never happen again, it is a matter of when, not if, the next call for aid goes out. So when
it does, know that SaskEnergy and its employees will do their part to help.
