AltaGas and PNG provide support to British Columbia’s wildfire emergency
British Columbia is still facing a state of emergency with over 820 active fires still burning across the province. Since April, over 426,000 hectares have been destroyed by these fires. Many people have lost their homes and many more are still evacuated.
The Red Cross has been working diligently to raise funds to help families displaced by these fires and those who have already lost everything. To help support these efforts, AltaGas and PNG provided a combined donation of $7,500 to the Red Cross to support individuals and their families.
“AltaGas and PNG are proud to give back to the communities where we live, work and do business, especially in these highly critical situations where so many are affected,” says Charles Lyons, VP, EHSS&S at AltaGas. “We hope this donation will be able to help in the province-wide effort to assist British Columbians.”
