Public Advisory

The link provided above is an advisory issued by the Provincial Government of NL and provides a comprehensive list, including numbers of who to contact for those requiring assistance as we move forward in the aftermath of Hurricane Fiona. Some key points are as listed:

Emergency Shelter and Health Supports

The Canadian Red Cross is advising that there is a new registration call line for individuals displaced from their homes due to post-tropical storm Fiona. The new number, 1-800-863-6582, is now active and impacted individuals are encouraged to register.

Disaster Financial Assistance
Depending on the impact from a weather event, expenditures may be recovered by the Provincial Government under the federal Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements program (DFAA). For DFAA, the province will need to provide the dates and estimated expenditures to the Federal Government, as well as meet the $1.7 million threshold. Coordination with residents and communities in respect to disaster financial assistance is ongoing as we assess the impacts. Once the DFAA program is activated, applications will be accepted from municipalities and local service districts, small business owners and home owners. A public advisory will be issued and information on the program will be available.

Once it is safe, as you assess private property for damage, municipalities and local service districts, small business owners and home owners are encouraged to:

  • Contact their insurance provider to inquire on any coverage that may be available.

  • Record details of damage using photos and video if possible.

  • Restore your property or municipal infrastructure to good order as soon as possible and when it is safe to do so.

  • Be sure to keep invoices and payment receipts for any work completed.

Safety Information
If you see a downed power line, consider it energized and stay away. For residents without power, a reminder to never use a gas range, stove or oven to heat a home. If you are using a generator because of a power outage, do not place it inside of any structure including garages, carports and sheds. Instead, place the generator at least 20 feet away from your home, down-wind away from open doors, windows and vents.
