With support for the Red Cross and on-site communications, Bell is assisting the people of Lac Mégantic following the train disaster of early Saturday:

-- Bell has donated $25,000 to support Red Cross relief efforts in Lac-Mégantic, which is about 200 kilometres east of Montréal.  All mobile phone users across Canada can also donate $5 to the Red Cross to support relief efforts by texting ROUGE or REDCROSS to 30333.

-- The Red Cross has deployed a 16-metre (53-foot) emergency response trailer previously donated by Bell. The vehicle has already transported supplies including beds, pillows and blankets to support an emergency shelter for displaced residents.

-- To keep emergency workers and residents connected, Bell has donated mobile phones, landlines, Wi-Fi and free payphone service for the shelter. 

-- The Bell team would like to thank our field technicians, network staff and emergency management team for undertaking emergency support and maintaining operations at the local Bell Central Office.
