Wildmare Creek Fire Evacuation Order #1 Cancelled

Issued April 25, 2024 at 1100 hours (11:00 a.m.)

Based on recommendations from BC Wildfire, the Peace River Regional District has rescinded the Wildmare Creek Fire Evacuation Order #1 as of April 25, 2024 1100 hours

This means the Evacuation Order is cancelled for the following areas:

  • Directly West of Bisset Creek
  • South to Pine River
  • East to Wildmare Creek

This notification does not apply to First Nations communities or municipalities as they issue their own Orders and Alerts.

Residents on these properties can return home; however, it is important to note that these properties are now under Wildmare Creek EVACUATION ALERT 2 .

Safety Tips for Returning Home

  • Please use extra caution when driving – there may be hazards on the roads throughout the area, including downed trees and powerlines. It’s a good idea to avoid driving at night or if there is poor visibility due to rain or smoke.
  • Please refer to our Heading Back Home Guide for tips on returning safely to your home after an evacuation, including:
    • how to assess and avoid potential hazards on your property; and
    • how to deal with health and safety risks in your home, including how to deal with rotting food and other garbage.

It’s important to remember that when you are under an Alert, you, need to be ready to leave the area again with short notice. Please review the instructions for the Wildmare Creek Fire Evacuation Alert # 2 to be prepared to evacuate on short notice if needed.

Please note that an Evacuation Order may need to be reissued; however, if that is deemed necessary, a new Evacuation Order process will be initiated.
