Hi Mike

There are some folks talking on the OSM Talk ca mailing list about actions
and imagery. The governments are curious about digital volunteers and are
coordinating via a group called Canvost (a Canadian volunteer network).
I've connected them to talk-ca.

At the moment the fire is moving fast and satellite imagery might not be
helpful until after it is out.

On a personal note, family (cousins) finally got out. Rebuilding will take
time and will need all hands. Even if it is not a HOT activation (I defer
to Hotties in Canada as I live in Qatar.) There will be a need for
post-disaster OSM maps.

Thanks again
