Emergency Support Services (ESS) extended to current ESS recipients until Friday, July 17.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and Dawson Road Maintenance have been making great progress on the Old Fort Road, however, the road may not be suitable for low clearance vehicles until mid to end of next week. As a result, ESS will be extended until July 17 when it is anticipated that all vehicle types will be able to utilize the road. PRRD EOC staff will be contacting all current ESS recipients to determine if ESS renewals are required.
