Emergency Response Manual
ON SITE HAZARDS
The South Okanagan experiences high winds throughout the year. Residents can protect themselves, and their property by being aware of these weather patterns. High winds can come up quickly, which can place children and others on floating devices at risk. Please do not leave umbrellas extended during high winds, or leave them unattended. It is advised that any patio and deck furniture suseptible to movement during episodes of high winds be stored away, to protect them, and you.
The Environment Canada website is an excellent source of valuable weather-related information, and covers many of these changing environmental conditions. For more information, please visit https://ec.gc.ca.
