We Need YOUR Input | How Prepared Are You?

Posted on May 03, 2019

In partnership, the Village, SLRD and Lil’Wat Nation are developing an Evacuation Plan for the Pemberton Valley that will have a focus on major flooding events. Catastrophic flooding is a possibility in the Valley and our new floodplain mapping has provided insight that the risk is high.

We need to hear from you. We are requesting YOUR input to capture an accurate snapshot of how people in the Valley would evacuate in the event of a major emergency.

This 2 minute survey, found at: https://bit.ly/2WoSFMm, will assist with development of the Evacuation Plan. The information collected is completely anonymous and will be used by traffic engineers to prepare traffic management plans and by first responder agencies to calculate what resources would be needed for an effective and, most importantly, safe evacuation.

This survey will be available until May 20th, 2019. We thank you for your time and help in creating a prepared Valley.
