BC Fire Emergency Information & Resources
Due to the impact of the fires in our province, the BCLNA wants to ensure our members are supported through this difficult time. We are monitoring the situation closely to provide timely information and updates.
Our thoughts are with all those affected. If you see a wildfire, please report it to 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on your cell. For the fire information line, please dial 1-888-336-7378.
On August 19, 2023, Emergency Management BC declared a provincial state of emergency.
Other organizations are also compiling resources and useful information for those, especially horticultural and agricultural operations, impacted by the fires:
- AgSafe BC
- BC Fruit Growers Association
The BC Government has also provided a detailed Wildfires Map to monitor the situation.
More resources will be linked as they become available.
Funding resources have not yet been announced, but are anticipated soon. We will update this page as they become available.
