West Carleton Disaster Relief has played a key role in responding to disasters in our community.
While WCDR continues to support our community members in their recovery from recent disasters, our team has recognized that West Carleton and WCDR need to become more prepared for future disasters. WCDR has begun to look at the many potential threats to our communities so we can prepare for future events. As our team is working on putting a plan in place for professionalizing our disaster preparation and response, we are now moving into a new phase of work with our readiness campaigns.
We have identified fire as a significant threat and have now launched our Wildfire Ready campaign.
Watch for more campaigns in the near future.

On September 21, 2018 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 work with those affected, the Red Cross, and our other NGO partners to ensure our donations have the impact our donors expect.
