The Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD) has opened a resiliency centre in Kamloops to support wildfire evacuees. The centre is open Monday-Saturday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm and is located at #3-700 Tranquille Road at Northills Mall.
The resiliency centre will provide resources for evacuees, including insurance advice from the Insurance Bureau of Canada and insurance providers. The centre houses and coordinates with a variety of non-governmental agencies (NGOs) and provides information services for evacuees from organizations such as Samaritan’s Purse, Team Rubicon, First Nations Health Authority and Interior Health. Service Canada and Service BC will also be located at the centre.
A mobile resiliency team will also be deployed that will travel to locations in the province where evacuees are concentrated.
