Evacuation alert for Dripping Water area near Alexis Creek has been lifted

The evacuation alert issued on Saturday for the Dripping Water area southeast of Alexis Creek has been lifted.

An evacuation alert may need to be reissued. If that is deemed necessary the process will re-commence.

Residents must be prepared in the event that the area receives a future evacuation order or alert on short notice. Local governments may not have time to go door to door should a new evacuation order be issued.

To ensure public safety, stay out of fire affected areas and obey all warning and hazard signs.

For rural properties that have been impacted by wildfire, residents should be aware there may be danger trees in wildfire affected areas. Home owners and private land owners are recommended to work with an insurance agency to have an assessment done by a qualified arborist on their private property.
