The Township of Spallumcheen has now activated their Emergency Operation Centre to a level 2 in response to the White Rock Lake wildfire.

Residents that are located in the current Evacuation Alert area able to pre-register online at https://ess.gov.bc.ca. By registering online, it will save residents considerable time and effort when accessing Emergency Social Services should they be evacuated. There is limited capacity at reception centres so pre-registering will assist staff and residents should we move to an evacuation order. Due to Okanagan hotels having limited resources communities are recommending that residents stay with family and friends.
