Now that the residents have been evacuated, the question turns to how to help them.

I tried to find the threads that were written during the Katrina Hurricane.

People internalize and wonder,

How would I manage to keep my family safe and fed as an evacuee?

How would I find safe food, soap etc?

Our hearts and minds are with all of Fort McMurray's residents, but especially the allergic community.

Recent events have made many, including myself, take serious note of making a better evacuation and emergency disaster plan, survival kit with allergy friendly staples, and more...

We have been watching in horror, as this fire and evacuation hit too close to home.

I have made calls to find out how the food allergy community can help specifically, by donating allergy friendly foods to the Edmonton Food Bank or other local food banks across the province that are sharing supplies to feed the evacuees.

My heart aches for the 88,000 evacuees, their beloved pets, some of which had to be left behind, and those who have suffered major losses. We are #AlbertaStrong and #CanadaStrong and we will take care of our own and rebuild.

I did speak with the Canadian Red Cross. They were giving preloaded Visa cards to those with special dietary needs so that they could purchase the items that they needed.
