RMWB Wildfire Recovery Information

Starting tomorrow, June 8, 2016, residents wishing to visit their properties inside the restricted areas of Abasand, Beacon Hill and Waterways will have daily access to these sites between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm, until further notice.

Access will be available to residents, members of the Property Visit Team and accredited contractors accompanying residents. All visitors will be required to sign in and out at security gates, provide identification and wear appropriate clothing (long sleeves, long pants and closed toe shoes). Additional protective equipment (nitrile gloves and N95 masks) will be provided on site.

Residents with destroyed homes who only wish to view their properties can do so. Residents who require Team Rubicon sifting services will be able to schedule an accompanied visit by calling the PULSE line at 780-743-7000. Appointments will be taken until June 19, 2016 and visits will occur until all scheduled visits are completed. Team Rubicon services are only available for properties which have been destroyed. Due to demand, sifting visits are limited to four hours and will occur only once.

Residents with structurally sound homes may visit their properties and are encouraged to take only essential items from their homes.

Residents with partially damaged homes are encouraged to coordinate visits with their insurance company.

Abasand, Beacon Hill and Waterways cannot be permanently occupied until debris has been removed by the municipality. We ask residents to continue to demonstrate the resilience they have shown so far.

We understand that this will be a difficult and emotional time for those returning to their properties and ask everyone to respect the privacy and dignity of all residents during these visits. Residents who wish to access mental health support should call the Mental Health Line at 1-877-303-2642 or Health Link at 811.
