Red Cross Reponds to Wildfires across Montana

shelter
Our disaster action teams across the state are ready to activate should more help be needed anywhere in our state.

The American Red Cross of Montana has opened three overnight shelters so far this summer in response to significant wildfires: the West Mullan Fire outside Superior, the Moose Meadow Fire in Philipsburg, and the Lolo Wildfire in Lolo, MT.

While all three shelters are now closed, we want to reassure Montanans that we continue to closely watch all wildfires in Montana, including the fire that is still burning outside Lolo. Our disaster action teams across the state are ready to activate should more help be needed anywhere in our state.

“Summer is a beautiful time in Montana, but it is also a time when we all worry about how many more wildfires are around the corner”, says Rod Kopp, CEO of the American Red Cross of Montana. “No matter what happens, the Red Cross will be there to help those who must evacuate–with shelter, food and emotional support.”

If you need wildfire-related assistance, please call (800) 272-6668 and ask to speak with a duty officer.

We need your support to continue to help our fellow Montanans this summer. Please go to our “Ways to Donate” page to find out the many ways you can support Montana Red Cross’s disaster relief efforts. We appreciate every single contribution.
