Temporary Access Planning for Commercial Farmers

Township of Spallumcheen is encouraging all Commercial Farmers to have an emergency plan in place. As part of this emergency planning, Commercial Farmers can complete a temporary access request which would potentially allow them temporary access into their farm if it was to be placed on an evacuation order. Temporary access may be granted for caring for livestock that it is simply not possible to remove during the Evacuation Alert stage.

Filling out this information in advance allows the Township to assess your access request quickly in the event your farm is placed on an evacuation order. In order to preserve security in any evacuation zones, temporary access requests will only be considered for commercial farms. 

You can complete the temporary access request online or on a paper form. Paper forms can be downloaded here  and printed or picked up at the Municipal hall.  

Additional resources for making an emergency plan for your farm can be found on our Emergency Info page or by clicking on More Info below.
