The District of Logan Lake wants to provide an update to the community regarding the current wildfire situation. Please rely on the TNRD website for the most up to date evacuation information (https://www.tnrd.ca/services/emergency-services/) and BC Wildfire Service for information on fire locations and current status (https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/wildfire-status/wildfire-situation). We are currently (Friday, July 2, 2021, 9:49 pm) not under an evacuation alert or order, although continue to pay attention to the overall wildfire situation. Due to the rapidly changing conditions, do not rely on this site for the most up to date information – please refer to the TNRD website for evacuation alerts or orders that may pertain to Logan Lake.
When an evacuation alert or order is issued, this will be facilitated through the TNRD website, so please monitor this site as needed to stay informed. When an evacuation order is issued, the District of Logan Lake will also be taking measures to notify residents through a range of means including physically going door to door, fire trucks with sirens, etc.
If we are required to evacuate, please also pay attention to the ability of your neighbors and others in town that may not be as able. If you are not able to evacuate yourself, please reach out to a neighbor to line this up in advance, if at all possible.
If an Evacuation Order is issued, it is likely that the District will be recommending travel south to Merritt or east to the Coquihalla and Kamloops. Specific direction will be provided if an evacuation order is issued, just in case these routes may no longer be viable.
Mayor Robin Smith
