More members of the military are en route to Vernon to help combat the White Rock Lake wildfire.
Land Task Force Vernon will be conducting another road move of about 80 personnel from 100 Mile House to Vernon via Highway 97 and Trans Canada (Highway 1).
Several military vehicles and pickups will be travelling the busy highways in small groupings, which could cause congestion or slowdowns along the way.
Another move of around 80 members of the Canadian Armed Forces took place Friday, Aug. 27, from Oliver to the Vernon Cadet Camp.
The City of Vernon said it welcomes the Forces to the community and offered its gratitude to all troops, firefighters and support personnel responding to wildfires in the area.
The Land Task Force is participating in Operation LENTUS, the Canadian Armed Forces’ response to natural disasters, on the request of the Government of British Columbia.
