The Canadian Red Cross increasing wildfire aid efforts in Kamloops.

"We have volunteers on the ground who are registering evacuees for the $600 assistance," said Georgiana Schuring of the Red Cross.

While delays have plagued the organization's efforts, B.C. and Yukon Red Cross vice-president Kimberley Nemrava told Black Press on Saturday that the first wave of cash assistance had gone this weekend.
