Posted 07, July 2021, 7:59 AM - Yesterday (July 6) the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District declared a State of Local Emergency for communities in Electoral Areas A, B, C and D. (Please note, the town of Lillooet itself is NOT part of one of these Electoral Areas; it is part of the District of Lillooet.

Posted 07, July 2021, 7:51AM - Most residents are probably now aware that the BC Wildfire Service now describes the southern perimeter of the McKay Creek Fire as 11.5 km north of Lillooet. The fire had previously been described as 23 km north of Lillooet. This change does NOT reflect any sudden southward growth on the part of the fire. Its extension to the south has grown gradually since the fire started. The change in description was simply to make the information more reflective of the current situation. (This information confirmed a few minutes ago by a Fire Information Office working on the McKay Creek Fire.)

Posted 02, July 2021, 3:57 PM - Here is the text of a release from the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District on the subject of donations:
"Sent: Friday, July 2, 2021 11:10:48 AM
If people are asking about collecting donations and making deliveries to Lillooet, we have just shared a post on our Facebook page, reiterating that the District of Lillooet has no capacity to accept donations. We were advised by DOL yesterday that their Rec Centre, which had been set up as an impromptu emergency reception centre for Lytton-area evacuees, was inundated with donations and they did not have the capacity for them.
We are asking people not to collect donations and deliver them, at this time, as we also need to keep the roads as free and clear as possible so that evacuees can move out, and in the event that more alerts and/or orders are issued in the coming days.
Instead, we are asking people to:
* Consider making a donation to the Red Cross, who delivers Emergency Support
* Consider making a donation to your local food bank
* Wait until an OFFICIAL call for donations is made
* For items already collected, check in with the shelter or agency in your own community (avoid travel) to see if they are able to take donations at this time"
