“As President Trump said yesterday, the United States is grateful to the government and people of Canada for its timely and helpful offers of support.  At this time, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Public Safety Canada are in close coordination.  FEMA will continue to work with its state, local, and tribal partners to fill any requests for assistance with all available assets.
