A much-anticipated evacuation route guide for Gabriola, and all of Electoral Area B, has been released.
Produced by Calian Group Ltd on contract with the Regional District of Nanaimo, it will guide the regional district’s emergency operations centre in the event of an evacuation needed on Gabriola, Mudge or DeCourcy islands. The full guide details evacuation routes, vehicle staging locations, estimated evacuation times and “other tactical considerations” that may be needed during an event such as a firea measure they both said was designed to protect tens of thousands of essential workers fro, windstorm, drought or power outage.
It also breaks areas of the islands into evacuation zones – 11 on Gabriola and one each on Mudge and DeCourcy. The estimated timeframe for evacuating a zone was determined by dividing population – this version of the guide uses 2016 Census data – and vehicle occupancy, divided by an estimate of roadway capacity. At 771 hectares and an estimated 339 vehicles during an evacuation, the Horseshoe Road area, marked as zone 7, is estimated to take 24 minutes to evacuate all residents.
