City Flood Response - Call for Volunteers

April 12, 2011

As river levels are rising, the City is calling for volunteers to help with crucial sandbagging efforts in vulnerable neighbourhoods.  If you have time outside working hours that you would like to donate to this effort on behalf of our fellow-citizens, it would be much appreciated.  I have always been proud of our staff’s personal commitment, as well as our professional one.

Please also take the time to spread the word to family, friends and neighbours that sandbaggers are needed.  We anticipate that this will be our first crucial weekend of the season.  

Anyone wishing to volunteer to help sandbag is asked to call 311; out-of-town residents who would like to help can call 1-877-311-4974, toll-free.
