Alberta Wildfire Update


Between May 4 - 26, 2023, more than 200 FortisAlberta employees from across the province sprang into action to replace more than 800 poles and 67 kilometres of line, bringing the power back for thousands of our customers.

As our residential and farm customers returned home, we ensured their power would be on when they arrived.

The strength and heart of Alberta communities was truly on display during this time. Numerous community organizations stepped up to provide support and comfort to those who had to leave their homes.

We are proud to call Alberta home and to share this great province with those who truly stepped up.

For the latest information on outages, please reference our FortisAlberta mobile app or visit our outage map.

If you come across a downed line or damaged equipment, please maintain a safe distance – at least 10 metres – and report the situation by calling us at 310-WIRE (9473). In addition, if you have questions about your electricity service upon re-entry, one of our customer service representatives, located in Airdrie, will be happy to assist you at the number above.
