Canadian Red Cross conducts forest fire smoke study in six Manitoba communities

January 10, 2017

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.
