Upon notification of an ALERT, you should be prepared for an evacuation order by:

  • Having a plan to transport all family members or co-workers outside of the area, should the area be brought under evacuation order.
  • keeping essential items readily available for a quick departure; including medications, eyeglasses, valuable papers (i.e. insurance), immediate care needs for dependents and, if you choose, keepsakes (photographs, etc).
  • Ensuring that any dependents are prepared for departure.
  • Moving pets and livestock to a safe area.
  • Ensuring that you have accommodation options for your family, if possible. A Reception Centre will be made available if required.
  • Monitoring reliable news sources for information on evacuation orders and locations of Reception Centres and the CRD’s channels on Facebook and cariboord.ca.
