Effective immediately, the Cariboo Regional District and District of 100 Mile House have lifted multiple evacuation alerts in 100 Mile House and surrounding areas. These South Cariboo communities are now open for regular business, vulnerable populations can return to the community and economic activity can fully resume now that the alerts have been lifted.
Evacuation alerts are rescinded in the South Cariboo for the following areas:
- Forest Grove and 100 Mile Fringe North;
- 100 Mile Southwest Davis Rd Area;
- southeast Canim Lake, South Mahood Lake, Electoral Area L and part of Electoral Area G;
- north end of Lac La Hache to 100 Mile House Boundary;
- northwest of 100 Mile House; and
- the District of 100 Mile House.
An evacuation alert or order may need to be re-issued as wildfire activity continues in the area, air quality remains poor and additional areas within the CRD remain on evacuation alert or order.
Since areas in the CRD remain on evacuation alert or order, residents must be prepared in the event that the area receives a future evacuation order on short notice. Local governments may not have time to go door to door should a new evacuation order be issued.
To ensure public safety, stay out of fire-affected areas and obey all warning and hazard signs.
