Alpine’s Kelowna base is being used as staging grounds for British Columbia Forest Service and other agencies who are providing direct fire suppression relief support: Horizon Helicopters, @Highterrian, @TopFlight, @Airspan, @Bighorn, @whitetoothheli and more during the McDougall Creek Wildfires’. With many of our own employees being impacted, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to the many phone calls we have received as well as the communities drop off items, including fresh fruit from local Farmers in Kelowna, delicious bread from @AlchemyBreadCompany and many anonymous donations keeping our fridges and freezers full! It’s amazing to see the community come together to support one another during these hard times, especially our front-line heroes who we can’t thank enough West Kelowna Fire Fighters Association as well as the other West Kelowna-based helicopter companies Valhalla Helicopters Inc. and @WildcatHelicopters, acknowledging all of their hard work and contributions to the fire suppression efforts. Alpine would like to give a big shout-out and thanks to our crews who have been providing non-stop support as well as on stand-by ready to help whenever needed. The West Kelowna Firefighters Charitable Society has set up the Disaster Relief Fund for those wanting to make any more contributions to the community: www.westkelownaprofirefighters.com.
