Due to flooding in James Bay communities, Perth County in Southwestern Ontario is in the process of setting up to receive up to 1000 evacuees.
A State of Emergency has been declared in Stratford & Perth County. Perth County units of SJA have been tasked with assisting with first aid at the shelters. Stratford than St. Marys will be the first two shelters to fill with other possible shelters in Milverton & Mitchel. At this time Perth County SJA divisions will be handling the taskings but as time progresses and depending on needs, assistance of other area divisions may be requested through SJA channels.

To Matthew and others who are interested. Please direct your offers of assistance to your local Superintendent. If assistance is required, it will be coordinated through emergency planning coordinators and that request will be distributed up and down the chain of command.
I would also direct you to become familiar with the the Disaster Plan. This is not a duty in the traditional sense, so there are guidelines about who can volunteer where. It can be found on this website under "Resources".
Once again, thank you for your offer of assistance and I invite you to forward your offer to your Superintendent who will be better equipped to respond to you.

With the return of some of the evacuees back up north St. Marys shelter has now been closed. All evacuees still in the area are now assigned to the Stratford shelter. It is hoped that over the next 2-3 days all will be returned home. Aircraft availability is the major element setting the time line.
