Additional Information

Purpose

The file represents Regional Districts, Municipalities, Electoral Areas, First Nation Reserves, Communities, or portions thereof, where an Historical Evacuation Order or an Historical Evacuation Alert has been issued in a year previous to the current year. Start dates, re-installment dates and All Clear Dates for each Evacuation Order and Alert are included in this multipart polygon dataset.

Data Quality

The database is updated yearly or where Geographical Information is required at a Provincial scale in order to support an emergency event. The Local Governments and First Nations are the custodians of these boundaries and where possible users should always consult them first for the information as there may be a lag time between when this database gets updated and when the Local Government or First Nation issues the order or alert. Data is obtained either through digitization of the information found on a printed document or it is consumed from a web mapping application into this single provincial overview of the data.
