Residents of properties on evacuation alert must be prepared to leave their properties at a moment's notice and be away from home for an extended period.

As Evacuation Orders are downgraded, residents returning home can access frequently asked questions and other resources to aid in their safe return. The public is reminded, for the safety of the public and fire crews, please do not enter areas under an evacuation order. There are still many areas where active firefighting is underway and dangers like downed power lines, hazardous materials, damaged trees, debris and equipment pose a safety risk.

Resources for residents returning to their homes include:  

Residents are asked to stay up to date through the CORD emergency site and also subscribe to receive e-updates. Go online to

Residents are also reminded to please stay off the lake north of the William R. Bennett Bridge to allow unhindered access to BC Wildfire Service aircraft.
