The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) wishes to inform the community about the progress of wildfire damage assessment within our jurisdiction.
Canada Task Force 1 has conducted a rapid damage assessment in areas that were deemed safe for entry. However, it is crucial to note that active fires still pose challenges in regions where property assessments could not be carried out.
As of August 25th, at 2 pm, the CSRD provides the following APPROXIMATE figures regarding property impacts: Total Structural Loss: 131, Partial Structural Damage: 37.
To access the most up-to-date information on property statuses, please visit our CSRD interactive map at www.CSRD.bc.ca. This map will be updated later today based on Canada Task Force 1's assessments, allowing you to search your property address and view its status. We will provide an update once this information is released.
Please be aware that these numbers are approximate due to the challenges posed by ongoing wildfires, which have hindered a comprehensive damage assessment. Nevertheless, the CSRD is firmly committed to supporting our community members during this challenging time. We will be individually contacting property owners to facilitate and assist you.
For inquiries and assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) at 250-833-3350. We are here to help to the best of our abilities.
Your safety and well-being remain our top priorities. Please stay safe, everyone.
