Emergency Response

River levels are always rising and falling and flooding is an ever-present risk for communities situated near shorelines like Prince George.

What does it mean when my property is under an evacuation alert/order?

Flood and wildfire preparation

Being close to nature brings ready access to many natural amenities, but it also means being wary of when nature suddenly becomes a threat to health and home. Familiarize yourself with what's needed to keep you, your family, and your home safe in the event of flooding or wildfires.

    Community Emergency Assembly Points

    Eighteen local schools have been designated as Community Evacuation Assembly Points. Community Evacuation Assembly Points are meant to be gathering points for residents that do not have vehicles, but are able to walk to a designated Evacuation Assembly Point. If you have a vehicle, proceed to the Emergency Reception Centre unless directed elsewhere by the Emergency Alert or Order.
