Members of Team Rubicon Canada are working with the township and its residents to assist with the collection of branches, trees and stumps left over from the derecho storm.
Volunteers will also provide assessments to determine the extent of damage to homes and businesses, cut down trees and offer some emergency repairs to doors and windows.
Team Rubicon Canada is a registered charitable organization that equips, trains and deploys veterans and volunteers to aid in disaster response operations globally. They are supported in their efforts by Community Disaster Response Ontario, a not-for-profit non-governmental organization supporting emergency management responses in Ontario.
Residents looking for assistance or to volunteer are encouraged to contact the Township of Alfred and Plantagenet by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 613-673-4797 Monday to Friday, 8 am to 4 pm.
