Resources for staying safe - BC wildfires

As you know, BC is experiencing its worst wildfire season on record.

Wildfires have already destroyed parts of Kelowna and are threatening other communities across our province. Smoke from wildfires is also having a dangerous impact on air quality and people’s health.

Please prioritize personal health and safety.

It is critical that you follow evacuation orders and alerts from your local authorities.
