AltaGas and PNG provide support to British Columbia’s wildfire emergency

August 8, 2017

Since April 1, 2017, there have been a total of 1,068 wildfires in British Columbia that have burned approximately 1,021,982 hectares.

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,” said Charles Lyons, Vice President Environment, Health, Safety, Security & Sustainability at AltaGas. “We hope this donation will be able to help in the province-wide effort to assist British Columbians.”
