With flood warnings for the Okanagan this weekend and the potential for floods in other areas, we are sending this urgent reminder for everyone throughout the province (and beyond) to be prepared for natural disaster emergencies.
This is an urgent message for our members, friends, families, supporters, and all who live in the Okanagan, and a general reminder to everyone to make sure you are prepared for a natural disaster wherever you live.
We encourage you all to read our emergency preparedness blog post and to make sure you have what you need to get by for a few days without power or access to stores, pharmacies, etc.
For Okanagan residents, here are the urgent warnings and resources for the flood warnings for your region:
- Important video message from the Mayor of Kelowna
- Central Okanagan Emergency Operations

From all of us at SCI BC, be prepared and stay safe.
