This evening, Thursday, October 17, RCMP and TLC staff safely evacuated the TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre. RCMP are not yet releasing any information around the incident, but confirm that the building is safe to re-enter at this time. For the rest of the evening, we will be closed to the public but will let tonight’s patrons back in to collect their belongings with staff escorts. For those patrons who could not make it back here tonight, we will keep your belongings safe for you to pick up tomorrow.
The TLC will re-open at 5:00 AM tomorrow morning, Friday, October 18. A huge thank you to RCMP, staff and patrons who evacuated so quickly and safely tonight. Thanks also to the team at the Holiday Inn Express Spruce Grove who welcomed patrons and staff until the building could re-open.
The RCMP have done a thorough check of the building and are satisfied that the facility is safe to return to at this time.
For questions about the TLC, please contact our General Manager, Lenny Richer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scents + YOU!
