FREDERICTON (GNB) – Residents affected by the 2019 spring freshet can report damage by calling 1-888-298-8555 or by registering online.

Reporting damage to the government as soon as possible is an important part of the provincial damage assessment and recovery process.

The Service New Brunswick TeleServices line is available to receive calls between 8 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. from Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Damage Report Line program allows residents, tenants, small businesses and not-for-profit organizations to receive information and register their flood-related damage with a single phone call.

Damage assessments will be reviewed, and health and safety inspection teams may be dispatched if required.

Residents are reminded to:

  • Contact their insurance companies immediately to report damage.
  • Take photos of damage to their homes or properties.
  • Keep receipts of any repairs and replacement purchases.
  • Log the number of hours of work undertaken for residents who are cleaning their own properties, or family members or those who have assisted in the cleanup of their property.
