Annual Propane Plant Emergency Response Drill – Now Oct 18, 2017

Due to the wild fires and its impact on some of our partners, we have elected to delay this exercise to October 18, 2017.  More information will be posted closer to the date.

CANCELLED – On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, FortisBC will be conducting an emergency training exercise with Sun Peaks Utilities, Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality, Sun Peaks Fire and Rescue, RCMP, & Superior Gas.

  • The exercise will involve a simulated emergency and no significant interruptions to residents and the public are expected.
  • Residents may see fire trucks, ambulance, and police vehicles at or around the Sun Peaks’ Propane Plant on Industrial Way. Signs will be posted indicating that this emergency training exercise is in progress.
  • This exercise is important to test emergency response procedures at the Propane Gas Storage Facility in the event they are required to protect public safety and property.
  • Please obey all signage, emergency personnel and slow down as you travel past the gas plant to the TNRD Waste Transfer Site.
