A small group of volunteers and affected residents have recently started a Flood Task Force to address the many issues we are faced with before, during and after a flood event. The mandate of the Task Force is to look at what can be done on a WC community-wide basis to reduce the impact of flooding. In addition to examining community-wide solutions, the Task Force voice will be stronger in dealings with Government and Agencies than those of individuals and will focus on ways to reduce the impacts of high water in West Carleton.
We are currently looking for a volunteer to be the administrative support for our efforts, recording minutes, carrying out research, etc.
If you are interested please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
VOLUNTEER INPUT & DEBRIEF
Our Flood Task Force will be hosting Volunteer Debriefings in January.
We are looking forward to hosting volunteers from both the 2017 & 2019 floods to establish a framework for future flood events. We want to ensure we can repeat the things that were done well & identify areas in need of improvement.
More information and a brief advance questionnaire are available HERE.
Please take a moment to register for our mailing list, so we can keep you up to date
on programs and services that may become available to assist with your flood recovery.
On September 21 a tornado left a 20 km trail of destruction across the former township of West Carleton,
completely destroying many homes, farms and businesses in Dunrobin & Kinburn.
From the efforts of volunteers the WCDR emerged to bring our five largest communities & our local NGOs together to support survivors of the storm; we are One in Recovery.
The West Carleton communities hit by the tornado are on the road to recovery.
There continue to be many challenges and the volunteers of the WCDR continue to working directly with those
affected, the Red Cross, and our other NGO partners to ensure our donations have the impact our donors expect.
