PRRD Evacuation Order Update

YRB has provided the following update on the Evacuation Order issued yesterday by the Peace River Regional District (PRRD) for the Beatton Airport Road Fire G80046:

Traffic Control Personnel (TCP’s) and “Road Closed” signs & barricades have been set up across the perimeter of the Evacuation Order Area. Attached is the PRRD map with overlays identifying where each control point is located. TCP’s are shown in RED while barricades are in ORANGE.

With strong Northerly winds anticipated to start today, the road closures have been implemented to help keep local road users safe from the spreading fire.

TCP’s will be advising traffic not to travel the closed road sections. If people still want to proceed, the TCP’s will record their Name(s)/Address/License Plate/Time IN/Time OUT.

As conditions change, we will continue to update you. You can also follow us on Twitter @YRBNorthPeace<>.
