The Drumheller valley has been filled with the sound of sirens this past week, seeming to have a police car on a mission everywhere you looked.
"It was a very unusual day. I can tell you we had 21 files dispatched to us and typically during a day shift like that during the week our average is 5 or 10. There was nothing that was too serious, everyone came out fine, our members are just a little tired," explained Corporal Gerald Sherk.
"I can't even explain. There wasn't a big festival, it was tourist season and we have tourists but that doesn't account for such a high file load," continued Sherk.
The file log included domestic issues, checking in on citizens' welfare, as well as accidents.
"We had a water tanker roll over on Highway 56; there was only minor injuries but it was a concern because things are so dry. If a spark from the wreck lit the grass it could have caused really serious problems, so fire was able to attend and make sure everything was good there," said Sherk.
Other calls included found stolen vehicles, assisting EMS and suspicious people that needed to be checked out.
