Help the Red Cross As part of its efforts to help Manitobans ensure they are prepared for potential disasters, the Canadian Red Cross is doing a series of forest fire smoke hazard studies in select communities across the province.

For the studies, the Red Cross is seeking input from residents of the following communities:
  • Chemawawin Cree Nation;
  • Community of Easterville;
  • Cranberry Portage;
  • Town of Gillam;
  • Shamattawa First Nation;
  • Swan Lake First Nation.
If you are a resident of one of those six communities, you can win an iPad by filling out a five-minute survey on preparedness and readiness in dealing with forest fire smoke. You can do the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CRC_Smoke_Hazard_Study_2017.

The Canadian Red Cross appreciates the assistance of the public as it works to help Manitobans to prepare for serious natural disasters, including forest fires.
