AHMA stands with each of our communities to ensure the safest and most successful procedures during all environmental emergencies. This page was created to provide an easily accessible index for all BC wildfire updates, resources and support contacts. 


Emergency Contacts

Always notify your local emergency response teams first in the case of a wildfire. The BC government created a list of contacts organized by regions here. 

Another important and helpful organization in case of wildfires is the Canadian Red Cross. Call 1-800-863-6582 to make an appointment to meet with a caseworker at one of the Support Centres.

To report a wildfire or irresponsible behaviour call 1 800 663-5555 or *5555 from a cell phone.

If an environmental emergency or wildfire has effected AHMA members operations and or tenants, we encourage our Indigenous Housing Providers to get in touch with your Aboriginal Portfolio Advisor (APA) by calling our main office (604) 921 2462, if your APA is unavailable you can contact Carol Endrizzi (778) 229-9193 or Sarah Silva (604) 649-9992.
