Thanks for joining us!


Another week in the books, and is sure was a hot one! Lots going on locally this weekend - with Lumby Days and the 1st Annual POWWOW at Komasket Park on Westside Road! Scroll down to click the What's Happening link for more details of events this week.

Meanwhile - SAFETY FIRST! Be prepared. Be FireSmart.

The recent hot, dry weather conditions have led to increased fire risks throughout the province. In the City of Vernon, the fire danger rating is currently listed as extreme. Effective at 12:00 p.m. (noon) today, Thursday, June 8, 2023, all fires are prohibited within the City of Vernon. (and in the entire Kamloops Fire District.

Vernon Fire Rescue Services (VFRS) and the City of Vernon would like to remind residents that now is the time to be prepared for wildfire possibilities; and being prepared begins with being FireSmart.

“Now is a good time to take a close look at your property and consider what can be done to protect your home, your neighbourhood, and your community from wildfire,” said Wes Brassard, FireSmart Coordinator. “Having a free FireSmart home assessment is a great way to help prepare your home and property.”

Residents are encouraged to sign up for a free FireSmart home assessment to help prepare their home and property.

The free FireSmart home assessment can be requested through the City of Vernon’s website FireSmart Coordinator | City of Vernon or by emailing: [email protected]

Tips to FireSmart your home and property

  • Clean and maintain gutters and roofs
  • Keep decks and balconies clear of leaves and debris
  • Establish a 1.5 non-combustible zone around perimeter of house and deck
  • Keep grass and weeds cut to below 10 centimetres and remove flammable vegetation
  • Prune trees to create a clearance from the ground to the lowest branches
  • Store combustible fuel sources (propane, oil, gas) on a non-combustible surface

Why We Host Open Houses

  1. Increased Exposure: Open houses provide an opportunity to showcase your property to a wider range of potential buyers. By allowing interested buyers and their agents to view your home without scheduling individual appointments, we can attract a larger pool of prospects.

  2. Convenience for Buyers: Open houses make it easier for prospective buyers to visit your property. They can drop in at their convenience during the designated time frame, which may include weekends or evenings when they may be busy with work or other commitments.

  3. Competition and Urgency: When multiple buyers visit your open house simultaneously, it can create a sense of competition. This competitive environment may prompt interested buyers to act quickly to make an offer to avoid missing out on the property, potentially leading to better offers and a faster sale.

  4. Emotional Appeal: Open houses allow buyers to experience the property firsthand and get a feel for its ambiance and layout. This personal experience can help them envision themselves living in the space, which may increase their emotional attachment and motivation to make an offer.

  5. Feedback and Market Insights: During open houses, real estate agents can gather valuable feedback from potential buyers about their impressions of the property. This feedback can help you understand how your home is being perceived in the market and potentially identify any necessary improvements or adjustments to enhance its appeal.

  6. Networking Opportunities: Open houses can attract not only prospective buyers but also local real estate agents and industry professionals. By engaging with these individuals, we may gain valuable insights, establish connections, and increase the chances of finding potential buyers through word-of-mouth referrals.

  7. Time Efficiency: By hosting an open house, we can accommodate multiple potential buyers within a limited timeframe. This approach can save you time compared to scheduling individual showings, especially if there is significant interest in your property.
