Working Together to Ensure Eagle Bay is Prepared in the Event of an Emergency

Are you ready if an Emergency were to happen in the Eagle Bay Area?
Each year, there continues to be the risk of Wildfires in our area and last year was particularly bad for the whole of BC. All Eagle Bay residents need to be prepared for this and other types of emergencies that could occur. Wildfires, flooding and prolonged power outages are emergencies that could easily affect us all.

Emergency Preparedness
We have created a network of residents within the Eagle Bay Fire Protection Area, who are prepared to act as Emergency Communicators to forward accurate and important information to their local neighbors, in the event of an Emergency.  For more information, contact:

With the possibility of wildfires, flooding and other events affecting our local
neighbourhood at any time, the following useful information is available:

An air quality advisory is issued when pollutant concentrations approach or exceed predetermined limits, or when degraded-air-quality episodes are expected to continue or worsen.
