Many people were involved in the response to this situation. The Hanna RCMP Detachment took 90 calls for service within a 20 hour period of time. These calls were spread out over a large geographic area. This is an extraordinarily high call volume obviously caused by the winter storm.

People on snow machines also drove out to areas where people were stranded to check on them and provide water. There are likely many more examples.
