Fort McMurray Fire News Alert: Civeo Making Rooms Available for Displaced Residents

May 4, 2016 at 1:13 PM EDT

HOUSTON, May 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In response to the local evacuation order following the outbreak of a devastating fire in the Fort McMurray area, Civeo Corporation (NYSE:CVEO) is making rooms at their lodge facilities available to displaced residents.

Civeo has lodges both north and south of Fort McMurray that can accommodate people requiring assistance.  North of Fort McMurray, Civeo has rooms available at its largest facility, Wapasu Lodge and recommends that people consider this Civeo location first.  If the need dictates, Civeo is ready to open its Henday Lodge.  South of Fort McMurray, Civeo has limited rooms available at two of its Lodges Marianna and Conklin.           

Last night, Civeo accommodated approximately 3,000 Fort McMurray residents including children and pets at its facilities providing rooms, bottled water and food.  Civeo's Athabasca, Beaver River and McClelland Lake lodges are full.

This unprecedented emergency is extremely challenging and has put a great deal of stress on basic necessities for everyone in the region. The situation is changing quickly and the availability of rooms at Civeo lodges will fluctuate as a result.  Civeo will be doing its best to respond and to accommodate those residents who need assistance.

Civeo is urging residents to travel safely, monitor regular updates in the media on the status of conditions in the region and check the Alberta Emergency Alert website, http://www.emergencyalert.alberta.ca/alerts/2016/05/3713.html.
