Town introduces tool to connect community resources

 Drumheller Logo Colour Hor

The Drumheller Emergency Management Agency is employing a new tool to help people in need connect with those who can help.

 The Drumheller agency is grateful to the Stettler Emergency Management agency for sharing its community resource connection tool.

This form allows those who need assistance to reach out, as well as if you are able and willing to volunteer or are available for hire. 

"If you are in need of support or if you want to volunteer, this on-line form at will help you find the appropriate resources,” said Mayor Heather Colberg. “We are so fortunate municipalities are working together during this crisis.”

She is heartened by how members of the community are stepping up for each other.            

“While it’s frightening to see what’s happening around the world, I am so proud of this community coming together to fight this vicious virus. I will also say, I’m not surprised in the least. This is a community that has come together time and again to face crisis,” she said. “We have what it takes. We know what to do and we will come out the other end stronger than before. We always do. I encourage everyone to share photos and stories on how our community is responding in a careful, compassionate and caring manner by using #drumcares in your posts."

This form aims to assist us in establishing connections for the following services: childcare, groceries and household essentials delivery; medication delivery; pet care, tutoring, and other volunteering needs.
