As you can see (or hardly see) our skies are filled with smoke again. 🔥
From recent events we learned that smoke can affect our current power system due to clogging of filters. In the occasion of an extended power outage of more than 8 hours, BC Hydro has installed a temporary mobile generator that can provide power to some essential facilities and services. (Hospital, Grocery Stores, Emergency Services).
Things to note:
- Mobile generation is intended to provide power to essential services – not to replace a community’s normal energy source.
- During the transfer of power facilitation time, there will not be power.
- Residences and businesses outside the powered area will continue to require portable generators to have power during outages.
- Maintenance of power system/filters may cause short-planned power outages. Keep up to date at BC Hydro Outages 
Ensure that you rely on and share information from official sources, including the Province of BC, or the utility provider directly. While we commit to sharing what we know, when we know it, to help keep you informed, we also rely on and will only provide information from official sources.
