Since the declaration of a Provincial State of Emergency on July 7, 2017, the Central Coast Regional District Emergency Program has been monitoring the rapidly changing situation   surrounding the B.C. wildfires, road closures and travel advisories.

There is currently one active wildfire in the Central Coast Regional District.  The fire is in the vicinity of the area known as The Precipice.  The CCRD issued an Evacuation Order for residents in the area on Sunday, July 9, 2017.  The fire was reported on July 7, 2017 and is currently at 2500 hectares.  Updates on Fire VA0778 can be found online at http://www.bcwildfire.ca  

As of this date, Highway 20 is open in both directions with limited visibility in some areas and active forest fires alongside the route.  Drive BC advises slowing down, drive with caution and have your head/tail lights on. Watch for fire suppression crews working in areas and livestock/wildlife on the highway.  Updates for this and other routes can be found on http://www.drivebc.ca .

The CCRD is working closely with the various agencies overseeing the state of emergency affecting our region.  Contingency plans are being developed in the event the current situation changes or lengthens.
