Rainfall Warning for Metro Vancouver

Be Prepared for Pooling Water and Localized Flooding

Posted November 21, 2017

rainfall warning is in effect with prolonged periods of rain expected until Thursday. City crews are working to mitigate roadway flooding conditions by clearing leaves and debris from drains, placing road flooding signs and pre-positioning barricades for possible road closures.

Leaves left or put onto city streets can potentially result in localized flooding due to clogged catch basins. Help us by removing leaves and debris from catch basins on your street so the water can easily drain during heavy rainfall. Learn more »

Community Safety Programs

Burnaby is a safe city to live, work, play and visit. To ensure that our city continues to be peaceful and secure, a number of programs are in place. These programs are aimed at maintaining the safety of Burnaby residents and preventing crime.

Some of the programs rely on Community Volunteers to deliver them, while others are operated by the RCMP and City representatives.
