Keyera South Cheecham Rail and Truck Terminal Evacuated due to Regional Wildfires
Calgary, May 5, 2016 – At 11:30 a.m., Keyera received an evacuation notice for the South Cheecham rail and truck terminal, located 75 kilometres south of Fort McMurray, in response to wildfires in the region.
As a precautionary measure, all non-essential personnel evacuated the site on the evening of May 4. The remaining employees evacuated at noon today. All employees and contractors are safe and accounted for.
Commercial operations at the site have been suspended and will ramp up only when it is safe to do so.
