What's going on?
Currently, in British Columbia, fires continue to rage on and displace countless communities and cities in their reach. These fires started primarily due to human activity, weather & lightning storms.
With close to 600 wildfires burning across the province, and 50 of them considered highly dangerous, the provincial government of British Columbia is stepping in financially in order to support these efforts.
According to the BC Wildfire Service, there are currently 560 active wildfires across British Columbia, with a state of emergency being declared already.
Our volunteers at the Young Humanitarians Foundation has proudly raised $250 for the Canadian Red Cross as a part of their wildfires fund.
To report a wildfire or irresponsible behavior call 1 800 663-5555 or *5555 from a cell phone. Information from the public is crucial to ensuring wildfires are responded to as soon as possible. All calls are answered by BC Wildfire Service staff at the Provincial Forest Fire Reporting Center. For more information, please visit this link.
