Wildfire Resources for First Nations Communities in BC

Source: First Nations Health Authority (FNHA)

On July 7, 2017 the Province of BC announced a provincial state of emergency regarding the current wildfire situation. This is an unprecedented situation for our province, and one that is affecting many First Nations communities in the Interior Region.

During this stressful time, we at the FNHA are committed to sharing information and support with communities. Evacuations are underway in many areas, and with the hot, dry weather expected to continue, more families and communities may need to leave their homes for safety.

The FNHA’s main web portal is www.fnha.ca/wildfire. 

Here you can find links to Evacuation Orders; Drivi​ng Conditions and Road Closures; Health and Social Supports​; and Air Q​uality Information.
