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. You can also participate in the West Carleton community campaign to become a FireSmart Community. Through this, FireSmart will work with our West Carleton community to outline measures that we, as a community, can take to reduce the risk of wildfire. You can get more information about this campaign or volunteer by sending an email to WestCarletonRelief@gmail.com.
Watch for more campaigns in the near future.

Your continued support is very important. Due to Covid-19 many projects have seen many delays and funding shortages.
It took almost 2 years but the WCDR team has completed its task of funding allocation and distribution as well as logistical support.
The effort put forward by first responders, volunteers, many different NGO's and the city of Ottawa was extraordinary. We cannot begin to thank you all enough for the support you have to show West Carleton during these past few challenging years of one disaster after another. We are hoping for a break from disasters soon so we can focus on properly thanking you all.
