To all LL99 Members:

Please be advised that there was a serious incident at our West Edmonton Facility today involving 2 members, both of which are in the hospital. From the whole Executive: we're wishing them the best and hoping for a quick recovery. Due to the nature of the situation we cannot release any other information at this time however one thing that was brought to our attention is that the membership in the shop performed admirably as they helped emergency crews deal with the situation.

Thank you to ALL who helped the emergency crews and made sure that our injured members were taken care of as swiftly as possible!!

If Members feel the need for EFAP assistance please contact 1-844-880-9142
