We as individuals can help by donating to the Canadian Red Cross, who I believe are already on the ground up there! The Alberta Government has announced they will match donations made, as well as provide the Red Cross $2 million to kick-start their relief operations for Fort McMurray residents.
I was less than pleased with our Prime Minister this morning, who was pretty general and non-specific about the assistance the federal government is going to provide. I'm hoping that he'll become more specific in the next few days as more details become available.
I haven't heard if the city of Fort McMurray has requested support from our armed forces yet. Those folks are trained to handle disasters such as this.
