The US President has ordered his team to dispatch all obtainable Federal firefighting assets, aiming to promptly aid in curbing the fires that are adversely impacting both Canadian and American communities.

This move is part of an ongoing effort by the United States to support its northern neighbour in battling these devastating fires. According to information provided during the call, the U.S. has already deployed over 600 American firefighters, support personnel, and other firefighting assets to aid in the Canadian crisis.

The two leaders also discussed about fortifying ongoing cooperation to not only prevent such wildfires but also tackle the health repercussions these fires impose on the affected communities. In light of the persisting challenges, President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau have pledged to maintain close communication about the emerging needs and response strategies.

The escalating wildfires, deemed both devastating and historically significant, have brought forth renewed cooperation between the two nations as they work jointly to protect communities and landscapes.
