Based on the recommendations of BC Wildfire, the Township of Spallumcheen has reduced the area that is under an evacuation alert on August 23, 2021 at 15:15 hrs. Please see updated evacuation alert area information below.

BC Wildfire commenced with a 150 hectare planned ignition today using low intensity ignitions and had crews actively patrolling in the area. They will continue to monitor weather and site conditions and once conditions are deemed favourable, BC Wildfire crews will begin the much larger planned ignition of 3,000 hectares. Please note that you will see significant smoke when this larger planned ignition begins. The Township will continue to do our best to update you on information about the planned ignitions as the information becomes available.

The Township of Spallumcheen is asking residents and visitors to avoid use of back country areas. We ask that everyone stay alert to signs of fire and report any signs of wildfire in back country areas to 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 from a cell phone.

Though the evacuation alert area has been reduced, all residents should be prepared for quickly changing situations. If you have not already done so, please review resources on our Emergency Information page regarding what to do to prepare for an evacuation and what to pack in your 72 hour grab and go bag.
