Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter says a temporary Provincial Disaster Assistance Program (PDAP) flood recovery centre will open in the City of Estevan to provide immediate support and advice to residents affected by recent severe weather and flooding.
PDAP is designed to help residents, small businesses, agricultural operations, communal organizations, non-profit organizations, parks and communities recover from the effects of natural disasters, including flooding, tornadoes, plow-winds and other severe weather.
The centre will be staffed with PDAP officials who can begin the claims process for area residents affected by the recent severe weather which saw more than 100 mm of rain and flash-flooding in some regions of the province.
A provincial building official will also be available onsite to answer questions related to structural safety and building concerns.
The Estevan Flood Recovery Centre is located at 701 Souris Avenue in the Leisure Services Conference Room.
It’s hours of operations will be:
- Friday July 15 – 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Saturday July 16 – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A PDAP flood recovery centre is also planned to open in the Town of Arborfield next week.
There is also a toll-free number for affected residents to call: 1-866-632-4033.
