Let The EV Experience Take You Up!

Accelerate Kootenays is Canada’s first community-driven, collaborative strategy to build a clean transportation network. It is a 2-year, $1.5 million initiative of the Regional Districts of East Kootenay, Central Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary with support from Columbia Basin Trust, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the Province of BC, FortisBC, BC Hydro, and Powertech Labs. The project, facilitated by the Community Energy Association, will create an electric vehicle (EV) charging station network so EV travel to and within the region is convenient and reliable. A detailed description of project partners can be found at http://acceleratekootenays.ca/about/partners.

WILDFIRE ANNOUNCEMENT

Pass Creek Regional Exhibition Grounds is always open and is listed with RDCK as a evacuation centre to bring your livestock.
There is a very large fenced arena, 36 box stalls, 3 covered pens and 30 smaller cages.
We have bedding and potable water but no feed.
Portable electric fencing is an option to set up if there is a need.
We have caretakers on site and the Exhibition Society is always willing to help.
Let’s just hope that we get a rainy June and enough rain through the summer, that we are not living on the edge again this year.
Being prepared is always good for your own fire safety plan for your house & family as well as your farm & animals.

We are an Evacuation Centre for Livestock and there is room for owners to camp as well.
