Based on recommendations from BC Wildfire, the Peace River Regional District has adjusted the Evacuation Alert area for the Red Creek/Stoddart Creek wildfires.
The properties that were under an Evacuation Order #4 for the Red Creek and Stoddart Creek wildfires are now under Evacuation Alert #6. This includes the following areas:
- Buick Creek
- Mile 70
- West Murdale
- Any properties on the west side of Highway 97 that were still under an Evacuation Order for the Red Creek wildfire
The communities that were previously under Evacuation Alert #5 are no longer under an Alert or Order. This includes the following areas:
- Rose Prairie
- Red Creek
- Coffee Creek
- Mile 62½
- East side of Highway 97 from Wonowon to Mile 120
This notification does not apply to First Nations communities as they issue their own Orders and Alerts.

It is important to remain prepared to leave your home on short notice.
An Evacuation Alert is issued to prepare you to evacuate your premises or property should it be found necessary. Residents will be given as much advance notice as possible prior to an evacuation; however, you may receive limited notice due to changing conditions.
- 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 NEBCAlerts.com 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.
