University of Lethbridge Housing High River Evacuees

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - Over 400 evacuees from High River are going to be housed at the University of Lethbridge.

 

The government requested that post secondary institutions submit what they have available and they got word that they were going to take them up on it on Wednesday.

 

The University has set aside residences until August 2nd but its a very flexible time frame.

 

The support doesn't stop at housing, Operations Manager Erin Crane says "we've got our new food service provider Aramark providing food services, our Sport and Rec department has stepped up and opened up the doors to the gym and the pool, we do have some camps available here on campus, through Fine Arts, Sport and Rec, and our Science camps that have opened up their doors to any of the kids who may be coming."

 

The Red Cross will be looking after them and Alberta Health Services will be on site for the next few days to make sure they have everything they need.

 

Crane says "it's a horrible situation for everybody and I think the University has really come together, we have volunteers standing by and everyone has just responded very well because they know that this is probably the worst situation that anybody could be in."
