The City is opening up a Volunteer Centre Thursday morning to assist with the Evacuation Centre at the College of New Caledonia.
The Centre will recruit, train, schedule and deploy the volunteers required to support the evacuees. It says there are a variety of shifts available although they are really in need of people to help out overnight from midnight to 8:00am.
Up to now, volunteer needs have been met by volunteers who received training before the wildfire crisis began. Through the week, the City has been working with a number of agencies to develop a list of additional volunteers to respond to the growing number of evacuees.
If you’re interested, you’re encouraged to complete an online form at the City’s website and take it with you to the Volunteer Centre at the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre.
