EDMONTON, May 5, 2016 /CNW/ - The Canadian Red Cross has opened an online registration option for the people forced to evacuate their homes due to the massive wildfires in Alberta.
Families and individuals who have been evacuated can register with the Canadian Red Cross the following ways:
- Online at www.redcross.ca/registration
- By calling 1-888-350-6070
Registering helps reconnect family members, provides emergency response agencies with necessary information to mobilize resources, and enables Red Cross to follow up with evacuees after the emergency has subsided to conduct personal needs assessments to assist with individual and community recovery efforts.
