We here in Kaslo and Area D have the good fortune of multiple response groups; Search and Rescue, Fire (Structural), Fire (Wildland), Ambulance, RCMP, Emergency Social Services, and the backup of regional (RDCK) and provincial (Emergency Management BC) structures for local events.
We have organizations locally and regionally who work tirelessly whenever called upon, such as the Salvation Army, the Red Cross, the Legion, Rotary, the Lions Club,local religious groups ...and on and on.
And most important to everyone is that "we have us". Every person who is willing to come forward and do amazing things when there is a sudden emergent need. Baking, cooking, driving, building, reading, paperwork, laundry, animal care, etc. Thank you to everyone who helps out to keep this area and beyond, safe.
