The Resort Municipality of Whistler’s (RMOW) Emergency Planning Committee has reviewed a Multimodal Evacuation Plan co-authored by the RMOW and District of Squamish. The Multimodal Evacuation Plan was endorsed by Whistler’s Mayor and Council at the regular meeting of Council on May 14, 2019.
If an emergency is serious enough, you may be asked to leave your home or ordered to travel out of the community completely. Whistler’s evacuation plan has been professionally developed by emergency planning experts to ensure that every single person can be evacuated safely from the community if an evacuation order is issued. For the plan to be effective, it is essential everyone prepares now for an evacuation, and knows what to do if an evacuation order is issued.
