An Evacuation Alert has been issued to prepare residents to evacuate premises or property should it be required.


Residents will be given as much advance notice as possible prior to evacuation; however notice may be limited due to changing conditions.

If evacuation is required, the evacuation route will be by water or by Spanish Lake Road



Upon notification of an ALERT, you should be prepared for an evacuation order by:

  • Having a plan to transport all family members or co-workers outside of the area, should the area be 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 dependants 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. Please visit the CRD Emergency Operations Facebook page at facebook.com/CRDEmergencyOperations as well as the CRD website at cariboord.ca.  For more
