Williams Lake, B.C. - An Evacuation Order has been downgraded to an alert for the Tzenzaicut Lake area in the Cariboo Regional District:

  • North of Roddie Road West 55 km; South 28 km and East 42 km; South paralleling Garner Road to South of 100C FSR; North side of Coulthard Road to the south side of Soap Lake; North East to South end of Miller Road; East to Fraser River.

Please refer to the map available on the Cariboo Regional District website to see the specific area that has been downgraded: http://bit.ly/2vLyJFK

Since this area remains on evacuation alert, anyone returning there must continue to be prepared to evacuate their premises or property should an evacuation be required. As with previous evacuation alerts, residents will be given as much advance notice as possible prior to evacuation; however limited notice may be given due to changing conditions.


Upon notification of an evacuation order downgrade, you should remain prepared for an evacuation by:

  • Ensuring that you know the location and preparing to transport all family members or co-workers and designate a Reception Centre outside the evacuation area, should the area brought back under evacuation order.
  • Keeping essential items readily available for a quick departure, including medications, eyeglasses, valuable papers (i.e. insurance), immediate care needs for dependants and, if you choose, keepsakes (photographs, etc).
  • Ensuring that any disabled persons and/or children are prepared for departure.
  • Ensuring that pets and livestock remain in a safe area.
  • Ensuring that you have accommodation options for your family, if possible. Reception Centre will be made available again if required.
  • Monitoring reliable news sources for evacuation order information.

Further information will be issued as it becomes available via the CRD Emergency Operations Facebook page (@CRDEmergencyOperations) and the CRD website www.cariboord.ca
