Support BC Fire Relief with Canadian Red Cross

Canadian Red Cross #BCFire Relief

Due to the sudden spike in temperatures, after a very wet year that inspired the growth of new, lush vegetation, fires have begun sweeping across British Columbia, destroying everything in their path. At C&D Logistics, we understand the dangers that these fires are presenting not only to communities in the Interior but also to nature itself. That is why we are doing everything in our power to support the BC Fire relief from Canadian Red Cross.

BC fire State of Emergency

British Columbia is in a state of emergency as nearly 200 fires burn across the province, mostly in the central and southern Interior, and over 6,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. So far, hundreds of firefighters from BC and other provinces have been deployed to bring the fires under control. While most of the fires are natural occurrences caused by lightning strikes, some of the fires were human-caused, resulting in campfires to be banned across the province. Currently, the province is expecting around 260 additional resources from across the country to assist with the situation, and police resources from all across the country have been called in to help with the Interior evacuations.

How C&D Logistics is Supporting Canadian Red Cross’s Relief Fund

In response to the devastating fires that are burning across BC, Canadian Red Cross has started a relief fund, raising money to help support those who have been evacuated from their homes. To donate to the relief fund, you can make donations at any BC Liquor Store or Canadian Tire locations, or you can make $10 donations by texting “FIRES” to 45678. Being a proud BC company, C&D Logistics has come up with a way to help out with the BC fire relief efforts from Canadian Red Cross. Every week for the remainder of the summer, we will donate 10 per cent of our profits to Canadian Red Cross in support of the BC residents who have lost so much to the fires.
