Communication disrupted across Penticton

City, BCSPCA and the RCMP’s non-emergency lines are down

The recent storm that brought floodwaters and high winds has also caused a failure to communicate, as it knocked out telecom lines in the region, including the Penticton RCMP non-emergency line.

The local RCMP non-emergency line, city of Penticton phone lines at city hall and the community rec centre, Penticton BC SCPCA and others have all been affected by the storm’s damage.

On Monday, the RDOS’ emergency operations centre phone line was down.

Penticton is currently asking residents to communicate non-emergency issues via the Report an Issue form on the www.penticton.ca website.

Other questions can also be directed to the email addresses of specific departments if you know the one relevant to your issue.
