The Village would like to remind residents about the importance of being prepared in these instances by having essential documents, medications and other important items ready in the event the evacuation alert is upgraded to an order. In the event of an evacuation order the Village will increase its EOC activation level and establish its Emergency Social Services Reception Centre.
The Village will continue to closely monitor the creeks and assess the risk to municipal infrastructure and public safety.
Residents are responsible for the protection of their private property. To assist with this pre-filled sand bags are available for pick up across from the Lumby Curling Club located at 2230 Shields Avenue.
The public should avoid going near the creek banks, and those working in close proximity to the creeks are advised to use extreme caution as the banks can be slippery and unstable. Furthermore the water is fast moving and may rise quickly.
The Salmon Trail remains closed and should not be accessed.
