“Others are making sure evacuees are being well cared-for while in our community. Volunteers are the lifelines of this operation and, without them, help simply wouldn’t be available to those who need it.”

Hall adds a special thank you is in order for Volunteer Prince George “For playing a critical role in managing and scheduling the many volunteers who have given their time and been away from family to help.”

According to the latest numbers from the City of Prince George, the number of wildfire evacuees in town has passed 9,000.
