Security firm flies food and supplies to Hope – Agassiz Harrison Observer

Several loads of food have been airlifted to Hope over the past few days, helping the community which has been cut off from deliveries.

Among the companies that stepped in to help was Paladin Risk Solutions. They partnered with Ascent Helicopters to coordinate, load and deliver food and other essentials to those affected by flooding, damage and devastation in the Fraser Valley and Hope region.

Hundreds of pounds of food and essentials, including pet food, were delivered to Hope on Friday, which is struggling with a lack of essential supplies as the district is stuck between closed highways . The essentials are also there to accompany travelers stranded in the region.

In a press release, the company said it was a plan put in place in just 24 hours due to rapidly changing events in the region.

Ascent Helicopters landed at Pitt Meadows Airport and a team from Paladin Risk was there to load the donations. Paladin Risk vice president Mike Lantz was on board the helicopter to ensure the successful landing at Hope.

Hundreds of people have had to be evacuated and rescued over the past week in the Fraser Valley and Hope area due to flooding.

Also on Friday, the government announced that Highway 3 is now open, leading east out of Hope for the first time since Monday.
