Red Cross Ready to Help
Prince George, B.C.-The Canadian Red Cross is providing registration services to those displaced by wildfires in the province.
However, anyone requiring immediate assistance with accommodations, food, medical or prescription support, will still need to seek support at local emergency social services reception centres.
The Province of British Columbia strongly encourages all evacuees to register with the Canadian Red Cross, even if aid is not required. Registering will allow family and friends to know the whereabouts of loved ones and that they are safe. It also allows the Canadian Red Cross to contact people directly as more information and assistance becomes available.
To register, please contact the Canadian Red Cross at 1 800 863-6582 or online at: http://www.redcross.ca/how-we-help/current-emergency-responses
