Local Victim Service Worker Returns from Helping Slave Lake Evacuees

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The three members of the Regional Police Victim/Witness Service Unit who volunteered to help victims of the Slave Lake fire have returned to the city.

They talked to people who had been forced from their homes, helped prepare food, and gave out supplies to those taking shelter in the evacuee centres located in Wabasca, about 120 kilometres northeast of Slave Lake.

Grace Couturier noted that most of the people she met handled the situation extremely well, saying they were just happy to escape safely.

Couturier and the two other volunteers will deliver a presentation Monday to their unit on the lessons they learned. She explained that one of the big things they found, is that when donations started to come in there was plenty of clothing for the women, but a real shortage for men. Couturier explained that it's something that happens during any disaster, and is something that a community should be prepared for.
