The Township is happy to report that the Horseshoe Lake Wildfire K41194 continues to be deemed as being “under control”. Crews from the local fire department continue to work on any hot spots as they occur. The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) remains active, but we are hopeful that with all the progress we are closer to the matter being concluded.  As always, we would not be in such a positive position without the countless hours of our local fire departments and BC Wildfire, so Thank You to the teams that work so diligently to keep our community safe!

Mount Rose Swanson trails remain OPEN to the public.  The Township asks that those using the trails remain diligent. Conditions are very dry and hot and everyone is reminded to use caution and if you see any fire activity call it in to BC Wildfire 1-800-663-5555 or (*5555 from a cell phone).

Communications will continue to be provided on the Township's website at www.spallumcheentwp.bc.ca under News and Events.  The next communication will be provided at 10:00 am on Saturday, July 15, 2023 or as new information becomes available.
