Pursuant to Section 12 (1) of the BC Emergency Program Act, an Evacuation Order has been issued by Chair Ken Gillis from the Thompson-Nicola Regional District at the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) in Kamloops.
A wildfire event located in the vicinity of Sparks Lake is threatening structures and the safety of residents in Electoral Area “J” (Copper Desert Country).
Because of the potential danger to life and safety, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District has issued an evacuation order for the following 1 addressed property:
• 9425 Deadman-Vidette Rd; and
• any other properties identified on the attached map.
If you are in the described area, you must leave immediately.
If you have been evacuated due to wildfires, you should register with Emergency Support Services (ESS) whether you need the support or not. This will help ensure that your loved ones and communities know where you are and know that you are safe.
Emergency Support Services will only be provided if your primary residence is one of the properties under evacuation order.
If your primary residence has been evacuated we recommend you arrange to stay with friends or family. If you cannot stay with friends or family, please report to the nearest Reception Centre tomorrow, August 14, 2021 at McArthur Island Sports Centre located at 1655 Island Parkway in Kamloops to complete the ESS registration.
