Blood Tribe Public Works Safety Update & Emergency Contact Information November 1st, 2022
Due to inclement weather the department of Public Works is asking that Blood Tribe members ensure that there is an adequate supply of food and water for the next few days. 40cm of snow in the Foothills and 20cm of snow in the lower areas is expected to fall over night. As a result, road conditions will not be favorable.
In anticipation of these muddy roads, Public Works has six graders, three loaders, two Bobcat machines, and one backhoe ready to improve road conditions on the main traffic arteries of the Tribe. Scheduled operations will continue including water delivery and waste collection.
Please keep in mind that these services may be slowed down due to the weather.
In the event of an emergency please call (depending on the type of emergency) the Blood Tribe Police at 403 737 3800 or the Blood Tribe Fire Dept. at 403 737 2102. The Public Works department will assist if needed.
