Wildfires have prompted two new evacuation alerts in the Quesnel Lake area.
93 properties in the Haggen’s Point and Hen Ingram Lake areas were issued evacuation alerts by the Cariboo Regional District’s Emergency Operations Centre this morning.
Evacuation alerts are issued in order to give residents ample time to prepare should an evacuation be required.
Residents are asked to prepare by: creating a transportation plan for all family members, gathering essential items for quick movement, and ensuring accomodations are sorted out among other tasks.
