There is also a TOMNOD campaign on at the moment that folks might like to help with.

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
