PMI Supports Alberta Wildfire Relief Effort

Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) stands in solidarity with the people of Albert, Canada as wildfires ravage their lands. Fires still rage as more than 100,000 people have been evacuated from the area and 2,400 homes and businesses have been destroyed in what is the largest fire evacuation in Alberta’s history.

“Our members have always been committed to helping communities in need, both as individual companies and as part of PMI. As the situation in Alberta worsens, our hearts go out to the people affected by the fires and encourage everyone to support the relief efforts,” noted PMI CEO/Executive Director, Barbara C. Higgens.
