Red Cross releases money for flood victims "$56"- * 54  r  /&84

The Red Cross announced that it is ready to start sharing out some of themoney it has collected to aid victims of spring flooding in Ontario and Québec. The international non-profit agency has had a fundraising campaign for flood vic- tims of the Ottawa River for the past several weeks now. The agency announced that it will release $4 million from the fundraising campaign for distribution. The $4 million will be split in two with $3 million used to assist more than 5200 families in Western Québec and $1 million to aid about 1600 families in Central and Eastern Ontario. During the last week of May, families which had left their applications with the Red Cross for financial aid because of the flooding were each scheduled to receive $600 through electronic deposit or transfer. Families which have not yet applied can phone toll-free to 1-800-863-6582 to get their names on the list or if Internet access is available, go to or to register through the website.

New unit for fire department The Clarence-Rockland Fire Department will have a new addition to its vehicle fleet. The United Coun- ties of Prescott-Russell is donating a used 2009 Ford Expedition from the Prescott-Russell Ambulance Service to the City’s fire department for use as an emergency response vehicle for any medical calls or other emergencies that firefighters might be called on to handle. The vehicle will be modified to carry a medical bag with oxygen mask and an automated external defibrillator (AED), a device used to deal on-site with cardiac attack victims. – Gregg Chamberlain

Jumelage avec la Corée du Sud La Cité de Clarence-Rockland considère obtenir une présence internationale plus forte grâce à un accord de jumelage avec l’ambassade de la Corée du Sud. Le mouvement fait suite à une relation amicale entre la ville et l’ambassade au cours des dernières années. Les arrangements de jumelage sont communs entre les villes et villages de différents pays et un tel arrangement avec l’ambassade de la Corée du Sud peut aider Clarence-Rockland à développer des liens culturels et économiques qui peuvent apporter des bénéfices mutuels futurs aux deux parties. Le maire Guy Desjardins a noté qu’un jumelage n’entraîne aucun fardeau financier pour la ville. - Gregg Chamberlain
