Community Risk Assessment & Emergency Evacuation Plan

This is the beginning of fire season in Nova Scotia. The CHPOA Board has prepared an emergency evacuation plan and a group of residents has volunteered to act as neighbourhood fire wardens.
FireSmart NS also did a risk assessment for Chalet Hamlet. Better to have a plan in place and never have to use it than to find ourselves facing a wildfire without a plan in place.
Finished Emergency Evacuation Plan 21 April 2021

Here's the wildfire risk assessment that was done for Chalet Hamlet by FireSmart NS:

Evacuation Route

'Sent on behalf of CHPOA Board'

With the onset of summer and the high risk that it brings for forrest fires, its prudent to talk about how we all can get out of the Hamlet if the main road was inaccessible due to a forrest fire.
The attached map photo shows an alternate evacuation route to get out of the Hamlet if our main road was blocked.
The lake in the top of the photo is Little Armstarong Lake and the road (marked in black) is the extension of Armstrong Lake West Road.

This alternate evacuation route would ideally require Off Road Vehicles to move residents out of the Hamlet, however, you can also hike this route if your health permits.
In the coming weeks, it is the boards intention to put together an evacuation plan and post it on Facebook and on the CHPOA website.
Comments and recomendations will be solicited and welcome in order to improve it.
