CAT response services: Severe flooding hits Fort McMurray

An ice jam caused the Athabasca River to burst its banks, sending floodwaters into Fort McMurray, Alberta. The disaster caused 15,000 residents to evacuate and more than 200 rescue operations. There have also been reports of property damage with residences, buildings and parking lots being partially and fully submerged. Preventative measures are now in place to help prevent floodwaters from spreading further. 

COVID-19 restrictions create additional complexity. Sedgwick would like to ensure that our clients know we are here to help. We're redeploying personal protective equipment (PPE) to adjusters serving the Fort McMurray area, so that we can conduct site visits when and where possible. Where site visits are not possible, we're able to use our remote adjusting technology to facilitate claims resulting from the event.

To report a loss, please contact: dispatch@sedgwick.com or 403.571.2050. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact our property team listed below. Thank you for your continued partnership.
