The majority of these zones have already been moved into an Evacuation Warning. This order expands each zone and allows more people the ability to get to their properties to inspect for damage, or just get home.

This means you can now return home at your own risk.  These areas are still at risk from the fires in the area. We recommend you stay home for the day once you arrive.  There’s going to be a lot of traffic in the area so please drive safely; our priority is getting everyone home safely. 

All other areas under evacuation order are still closed.  We will send an alert for each area as it re-opens. Continue to follow the instructions of first responders in the area and make sure to listen for hi-lo sirens if fire conditions change. Use extreme caution when around any burned areas that may be present. The burn area is under a Public Health Order due to health hazards created by the fire.
The public is reminded to stay vigilant on current fire conditions. Please continue to adhere to road closures and any evacuation warnings. A reminder to drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area.
