The Town of Drumheller is work­ing with the prov­ince to ex­tend sup­port to af­fected res­i­dents of the Rose­bud River and Hwy 10X area.

Di­rec­tor of Pro­tec­tive Ser­vices Greg Peters high­lighted that the res­i­dents in need were in good hands and ex­tended his sup­port.

“Those af­fected have been sup­plied with my con­tact in­for­ma­tion and I en­cour­age them to call me if they have ques­tions or need fur­ther as­sis­tance at any time now or in the fu­ture,” said Peters.

The rep­re­sen­ta­tives met with pro­vin­cial dis­as­ter re­lief case­work­ers and an Emer­gency Man­age­ment field of­fi­cer to also as­sess the ar­eas af­fected by the high river lev­els.

Res­i­dents were in­formed by the group of pro­vin­cial work­ers of an out­line of the re­cov­ery as­sis­tance process in ad­di­tion to re­ceiv­ing sup­port from the Town.

The team’s ob­jec­tive is to meet ev­ery iden­ti­fied res­i­dent who is in need of help.

“I spoke with our field of­fi­cer this af­ter­noon and he said the meet­ings were pro­gress­ing well,” said Peters.

The Town will also sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion for the re­cov­ery as­sis­tance on be­half of those af­fected.

Town staff will fol­low up with the case work­ers and field of­fi­cers af­ter their as­sess­ment is com­plete. heller con­cluded on Fri­day, March 31.
