Westcourt Place residents needing short-term access to their apartment building will have a three-hour window of opportunity this evening, Wednesday, November 13th, 2019.

Windsor Fire, in conjunction with the City of Windsor Social Services, Red Cross and Westcourt building management have come up with a plan to escort groups of residents in need back into the building between 5pm and 8pm tonight.

Here are the guidelines for residents who want to take advantage of this opportunity:

  •  Only one resident per unit is permitted to attend.
  • First come, first served basis – must check in with a Windsor Fire Official in the City bus parked at Goyeau and expect a wait to gain entry (please be patient).
  • Residents must wait on the bus or lose their spot in line.
  • Bus will be located at the main entrance on Goyeau
  • • Residents are to plan to pack for their essential needs for 72 hours or more: this is to include clothing, medical devices, medications, ID, keys.
  • If the resident has a pet, they must be able to retrieve their pet on their own and must have their own carriers for pets: firefighters will not carry pets outside of cages.
  • If they require shelter for the next 72 hours or more, they need to report to the WFCU Reception Centre at 8787 McHugh Street.
  • Residents are allowed one entry to gather all required items.
  • Residents must be able to provide proof of residence in order to gain entry, e.g. driver’s licence
  • No further access to the Westcourt building will take place after 8pm this evening.

Residents who can’t make today’s timeframe are asked to call or email 311 ([email protected]) and leave a name, apartment number and number to be called back. If owning a vehicle please also indicate the parking level it’s in. Calls would be best early Thursday morning. The contact centre opens at 8am.
