Special Safety Bulletin: British Columbia


There is concern that government officials in British Columbia may not have the capabilities to effectively proceed with the evacuation of people as required in areas affected by wildfires, or even communicate with those people with respect to evacuation orders. 

It is therefore recommended that people rely on their own intelligence and judgement rather than on the Province of British Columbia, for their own safety and that of their assets, livestock, and pets, and evacuate as necessary before being advised to do so by government officials.
