Rescue agencies in Alberta are fielding a higher volume of calls, including ones about accidental deaths, as Canadians stay closer to home this summer due to COVID-19.
In the Rockies, Kananaskis Country Public Safety said they have noticed twice as many calls in recent months compared to the same period last year.
“It’s been a busy, busy summer,” public safety specialist Michael Olsthoorn said from Canmore. “It’s just busier ... on all fronts.”
Olsthoorn said more people recreating also means more rescues, with specialists responding to up to seven calls each day.
“We’re probably double the previous years.”
