Lost Creek Fire 2003Club members assisted forestry by manning road blocks to prevent civillians from entering the fire zone.
Road blocks were set in place day and night 24hrs, this lasted for 1 week. Members from the Foothills Amateur Radio Society from the Calgary area also assisted.
Also heavy equipment was dispatched via Amateur Radio because of the nature of the extream fire and rugged back country.
Two club members were operating dozers and low bed trucks the very day the fire started. Storm knocks out power, leaves residents in the dark 2005
