We Sold a Truck!

After a great deal of consideration, it was decided that we should sell our Compressed-Air Foam system Truck to a department that could get more use out of it than we have. We put it up to the district and after approvals and due process, we have accepted an offer and officially sold this truck to the CVRD for the Honeymoon Bay Fire Department. We can officially retire MBFD CAFS 77.Read More →

Unless you must be somewhere, please stay off the roads. The snow is very deep in places and side roads have yet to be ploughed. Plough trucks and first responders need to be able to get around, and if you get stuck on the road somewhere, that could hinder our response. Listen to news reports and we will attempt updates here when time permits.
Stay safe everyone!

Issued Wednesday January 8th, 2020 at 12:40pm PST



Weather Event Impacts:

· Elevated risk for cold related health issues

· Prolonged openings for homeless shelters

· Slippery conditions near moisture sources



Description:

· Arctic air has already spread across northern portions of the province producing overnight lows of -25 to -30oC in the Peace Country and Northern Interior. The cold air will continue to push southwards reaching the Central Interior by Saturday and southern regions by Sunday. The cold air will then reach the South Coast by Sunday night.



· Lower than normal temperatures will persist beyond the middle of next week, potentially until next weekend.



· Following a relatively mild start to the winter season, these will be the lowest temperatures experienced this winter.



· With the cold air in place, this will increase the possibility of snow for the North Coast, South Coast and Central Interior early next week.



Confidence Level:

HIGH with respect to the overall pattern and prolonged occurrence of colder than normal temperatures.

LOW with regards to amount of snow next week including low elevation snow for the South Coast.



Recommendations:

· Travel with emergency supplies.

· Drain water lines exposed to cold temperatures.

· Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings.

Stay Safe this Christmas!
Get rid of your tree after Christmas or when it has dried out. Do not leave it in the home or garage, or next to the outside of the house.
