The City of Vernon has received resources to supply pre-filled sandbags to Vernon residents that are at risk of overland flooding.
Pre-filled sandbags are available at City Operations’ (1900-48th Avenue) back gate located off Pleasant Valley Road.
Sandbags are free of charge to City of Vernon residents and will be available while supplies last. The city would like to thank the BC Wildfire Branch crew members for their assistance with this program.
The city also reminds residents to exercise caution, particularly with children and pets, when in the vicinity of fast-moving creeks, streams and water.
