Cochrane and Search and Rescue assisted the Stoney Nakoda Nation through the heavy rain event.
President Evan Knox says members of the volunteer organization were in Mini Thni around the clock from June 13 to 14 until the threat subsided from the major rain that saw much of the region placed under a flood watch. It has since been downgraded to high streamflow.
"We set up an emergency operations centre and were able to set up a hotline and respond to any calls of potential flooding, leaky homes, backups sewer, and then help with the response to that."
With conditions improving, they withdrew their services late yesterday afternoon.
Nakoda Emergency Management continues to monitor the situation and respond when called upon. Residents can call Housing at 403 819-6330 to report water damage and request assistance.
Nakoda Fire responded to eight leaking roofs or other rainwater-related damage on June 13. Homes that are unable to be patched or repaired by Nakoda Fire were passed along to the housing manager for each band.
Their responders delivered flood-related equipment, tarps pumps, and generators to Eden Valley on June 13 to assist with basement or overland flooding.
Nakoda Fire is operating 24/7 during this event, and their EMS service is staffing a third ambulance until Thursday evening.
