A C-17 Globemaster, a C-130J Hercules, two CH-147F Chinooks and three CH-146 Griffons are being sent by the Canadian military to support crews fighting wildfires in British Columbia.

The government in British Columbia requested help from the federal government in the form of RCAF aircraft to conduct a variety of tasks. Those include assisting with the evacuation of the local population affected by the wildfires and assisting the ground operations by providing airlift capacities for first responders and equipment, according to the Canadian Forces.
