UPDATE - Dec. 9 at 4 p.m.: Reception Centre

BC Hydro continues to work on plans for restoration and estimates that some residents in Golden and Area A will likely be without power again over night.
 
The location of the Reception Centre will be moved to the Golden Library (819 Park Dr) and Lion’s Den (in the basement of the Library) to accommodate more people that need access to power, water and heat overnight. The Golden Food Bank has dropped off some ready-to-eat food and snack items as well as baby formula. If you require emergency access to food, please contact Laura Archer at 250-290-0467.
 
COVID-19 protocols will be in place and masks will be required.
 
Prevent frozen pipes
 
There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent your pipes from freezing during a winter power outage:

  • If your home or business have had previous issues with pipes freezing, leave taps dripping and flush toilets hourly until heat is restored.
  • If your home or business are without a heat source and indoor temperatures are expected to drop below 0C, leave taps dripping and flush toilets hourly until heat is restored.
  • Keep garage doors closed, especially if there are water supply lines in the garage.
