The Regional Emergency Operations Centre (REOC) is committed to ensuring that every resident will be given the opportunity to have their property sifted.
“We acknowledge that the sifting program has not met residents’ expectations and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and frustration that this has caused,” said Bob Couture, Director of Emergency Management with the Regional Emergency Operations Centre. “We have identified the internal challenges that resulted in us missing appointments and failing to return calls, and have taken the necessary steps to rectify the situation.”
The Municipality and REOC thank Team Rubicon for their support and generous efforts that resulted in approximately 700 properties being sifted to date; a REOC-led team will be continuing the property sifting program following Team Rubicon’s demobilization on June 24.
REOC staff will be contacting all residents who lost their homes as a result of the wildfire.
Arrangements to receive property sifting can be made by calling PULSE at 780-743-7000. The property sifting service will not be offered past July 1.
