Members have also been focused on recovery efforts in Hope and Chilliwack, two communities that have also been hurt by the devastating weather and flooding.

Abbotsford mayor Henry Braun stated in his daily press conference on Monday (Nov. 22) that members in Abbotsford have been regularly walking and checking on local dikes and helping remove debris in culverts.
