EMO sets up shop in Virden

Virden has begun the recovery process from the severe overland flooding caused by heavy rainfall at the end of June.

A mobile recovery unit has been set up by Manitoba’s Emergency Measures Organization to help speed up the process for individuals applying for disaster financial assistance.

“Being able to deal with people face to face rather than from our Winnipeg office really benefits everyone,” said Jeremy Angus, director of recovery. “I would anticipate we will be staying in the region for awhile.”

The mobile recovery unit opened in the parking lot of Virden’s town office on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. They will be there the same hours Monday and Tuesday before moving to Elkhorn.

“The biggest thing people need to know is that they can just come talk to us,” Angus said. “They don’t need to bring anything with them.”

Inspectors are in the area to begin the initial property inspections, he added.

The mobile recovery unit is in discussion with community officials in the Westman area to set up in other communities.

Individuals that are not able to get to the mobile unit can apply for disaster financial assistance by phone, fax or email. All the necessary information is listed at manitobaemo.ca.
