The 2013 floods in Alberta took over a large part of the city I call home and displaced many of my friends and family. Hearing of the flooding in British Columbia leaves me with a very heavy heart and I hope you are all staying safe out there.

 

I’ve put together some resources to help ensure you’re prepared if in an at-risk area or if you are looking to provide support and help a neighbour in need.

You can find many more resources on the internet for flood preparedness and relief efforts and we will do our best to update this post with any changes.

 

Most importantly, stay connected, stay safe, and look out for one another.
