Red Cross BC is standing by in PG in case the flooding situation takes a turn for the worse.

A new mobile emergency response vehicle was showcased for the public eye, displaying how the non-profit organization provides the materials evacuees need in a time of crisis.

“We want to be able to respond within 12 hours of a disaster, and so, by having things pre-positioned in various places in the province, that makes it more possible for us to get there quickly.”

– Red Cross BC Northern Disaster Management Coordinator Jesse Bowen

PG is one of three locations in BC to have this unit, serving the North when Level Three emergencies are implemented.
