Smokey Skies Advisory for Prince George

Sunday, August 27, 2017 @ 2:15 PM

Prince George, B.C. – Prince George is once again included in a Smokey Skies Bulletin issued by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy in collaboration with the Northern and Interior Health Authorities.

This amended bulletin, issued at 1 pm today, covers the following areas: Prince George, Cariboo North including Quesnel, Cariboo South including Williams Lake, 100 Mile House, North Thompson, South Thompson, Okanagan and Boundary.

Due to changing smoke conditions smoke concentrations will vary widely with changes in winds, fire behaviour and temperatures.

You are advised to avoid strenuous outdoor activities and, if experiencing difficulty in breathing, chest pain or discomfort and sudden onset of cough or irritation of airways you should see your health care provider.  Those with underlying medical conditions, such as lung or heart disease or diabetes, as well as infants and the elderly may be most susceptible to exposure to these smokey conditions.

This bulletin will remain in effect until further notice.


Sure glad the City lifted the ban last week. Great to have the firepit going again!

I cant believe that they have smoky skies in PG. We just have a manure smell in Abby.Cheers

    Thing is, when I can see Tabor Mtn. and Cranbrook hill clear as a bell,
    there may be smoky skies but half the time there aren’t any.

Manure smell at 30 degrees out is doubly bad as smokey skies
