What to do if an Evacuation Alert

Williams Lake Logo

In the event that you are on evacuation alert, residents should remain prepared for an evacuation by:

  • Having a plan to transport all family members or co-workers outside the area, should the area be brought back under evacuation order.
  • Keeping essential items readily available for a quick departure, including medications, eyeglasses, valuable papers (i.e. insurance), immediate care needs for dependants and, if you choose, keepsakes (photographs, etc).
  • Ensuring that any dependents are prepared for departure.
  • Ensuring that pets and livestock remain in a safe area.
  • Ensuring that you have accommodation options for your family, if possible. A Reception Centre will be made available again if required.
  • Monitoring reliable news sources for evacuation order information. Further information will be issued as it becomes available.
