Provincial State of Emergency

July 22, 2021  |  Public Notices

NEW DENVER, SILVERTON AND AREA RESIDENTS

As we are all aware of the current extreme fire risk we need to be vigilant and exercise extreme caution with our actions.  Due to fire risk, please avoid the following activities:

  • Use of spark producing tools (chainsaws, grinders, cutting torches)
  • Use of propane fire pits
  • Lawn mowing as these have the potential to ignite a fire as well
  • Parking vehicles in long grass or easily combustible material
  • Refrain from watering as our pumps are working at maximum capacity

To report a wildfire/irresponsible behaviour call 1-800-663-5555 or (*5555 from a cell phone) as soon as possible!

If the situation is imminently threatening a structure or someone is injured and requiring assistance please call 911 immediately.

A friendly reminder that calling local members BEFORE calling the appropriate emergency line can slow our response.
