However, because of the continued threat of fire, the regional district has included the properties in Schedule 1 of an evacuation alert.

An evacuation alert means residents should be prepared to evacuate their properties immediately. While residents will be given as much advance notice as possible, they may have limited notice because of the changing conditions.
