Posted on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 16:06 PM

The provincial government is launching a disaster financial assistance program in the wake of the deadly and devastating ice storm which New Brunswick has yet to recover from.

The government in a release says that the assistance program covers anything that threatenst he health and safety of individuals and communities but not something insurance is available for. Fixing an electricial panel, for example, would be covered but food loss wouldn't.

You start the application process by reporting any damages related to the ice storm by calling 1-888-298-8555.

Application forms are also available at warming centres and shelters as well as online.
