Wildfires in Christchurch

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Wildfires have broken out in Christchurch, New Zealand, causing extensive property damage and requiring evacuation of some citizens. A state of civil emergency has been declared due to the rapid spread of the wildfires, but IFSA-Butler students are not in any danger at this time due to their location within the city. Our resident office has contacted every student to verify their well-being and to provide safety information. Students are continuing to participate in pre-semester campus activities and IFSA-Butler events as scheduled.
