Red Creek Evacuation Alert #3

The Peace River Regional District has adjusted the boundary of the Red Creek Evacuation Alert area. There has been no expansion to the Alert area. The updated Alert addresses areas that previously overlapped with the Stoddart Creek wildfire Evacuation Alert and Order. With the adjusted boundaries, those areas have been removed from the Red Creek Evacuation Alert to eliminate any possible confusion among the public.

Red Creek Evacuation Alert #3 now applies to properties on the west side of Highway 97 from Highway 29 to the Beatton Airport Road.

To see if your property is affected by this adjustment:

  • Use the webmap tool 
  • Click on the “I want to…” blue box on the map, and select “Search for address” to enter your address information.

This is the time to GET PREPARED to leave

This Evacuation Alert has been issued to advise you to be prepared to evacuate your premises or property should it be found necessary. Residents will be given as much advance notice as possible prior to evacuation; however, you may receive limited notice due to changing conditions.

This is the time to GET PREPARED to leave your home on short notice.  

  • Locate all family members and designate a meeting area outside the evacuation area, should an Evacuation Order be called while separated.
  • Sign up for North East BC Emergency notifications at to receive alerts about Evacuation Orders and Alerts.
  • Pack essential items for a quick departure, such as government-issued ID, medications, eyeglasses, valuable papers (e.g. insurance, passports, birth certificates, banking and mortgage information), immediate care needs for dependents, cell phone and charger and, if time and space permits, personal keepsakes.
  • Prepare to move disabled persons, children and/or neighbours, if they need assistance.
  • Prepare to take pets with you including pet care items (leash, carrier, food) and move livestock to a safe area (if possible).
  • Arrange transportation for all your household, and fill the gas tanks of personal vehicles.
  • Arrange accommodation for all members of the residence, if possible.
  • If you will need assistance to evacuate from the area, such as for transportation, mobility, health, or other needs, please call 1-800-670-7773.
