Emergency Alerts and Orders

Ordering an evacuation of all or part of an emergency area is a very serious step and requires detailed planning. In BC, the Emergency Program Act permits the head of a local authority to declare a state of local emergency, which allows the local authority to order an evacuation should it be absolutely necessary. There are several other statutes (Fire Services Act, Forest and Range Practices Act, Public Health Act, Environment Management Act, and the Mines Act) that can be used to order an evacuation.
