KAMLOOOPS — The wildfire evacuee centre is now located at TRU.

Emergency Operation Centre Information Officer Debbie Sell says the centre was changed from McArthur Island Park to TRU due to a high demand of evacuees.

The  Emergency Social Service Reception Contre is now located in the Old Main Building.

It will open everyday at 10:30 a.m.

Sell says the move will free up space for workers to provide additional evacuee services at McArthur Island Park.

Those needing information on ESS services are asked to call the TNRD Emergency Operations Cenre at 1-866-377-7188.
