Resilience Centre closes

Residents will be able to continue accessing all the same services by calling the Red Cross at any time.

As most residents who were impacted by the Rock Creek/Westbridge wildfire have now met with support agencies, the Midway Resilience Centre was closed yesterday (Wednesday). However, all residents will be able to continue accessing all the same services by calling the Red Cross at any time at 1-888-800-6493.

Residents can also continue their recovery process by confidentially discussing what help they still need with the newly-formed Needs Committee. The members of this committee will collectively assess the needs in the affected areas and decide how best to use donated funds and keep them local.
