Enjoy an unspoiled northern experience.
We have been very lucky this hot/dry summer season in that we had only one reported fire. Since the summer is over, the MBA fire pumps will be removed from the pump stations around October 15, 2018 and returned around May 15, 2019. Hopefully there will not be any fires but if you see an unattended and/or out of control fire call 310-FIRE (3473).

The NEMI Fire Ban has been lifted. If you open burn or barrel burn, PLEASE be very careful and please DO NOT leave the fire unattended. Remember 310-3473 (FIRE) if you see an out of control forest fire, then call your friends or neighbors for help. THANK YOU for observing the fire ban during this very dry summer.

Just contacted NEMI and the FIRE BAN is still in effect. I will continue checking and let you know if things change. Remember 310-3473 (FIRE).

Contacted NEMI and the FIRE BAN is still in effect. I have been advised by Laurie Cook that if you want you can call 705-368-3500 and hit "0" to get fire ban status during business hours. While MNR&F may not have part of THE BAY in a restricted area, NEMI has the ability to declare a fire ban. So, NO OPEN FIRES, please. Remember, if you see an unattended, out of control fire call 310-3473 (FIRE).

In the past Ferguson Maintenance had a permit to burn on the island.
That is no longer the case and has not been since 2016. Last summer some folks from the Garden Group took soil, pine seedlings, sedum and some grasses out to the Burn Island. We put out 6 bags of 25L soil and planted the things we brought. These were kept watered over the course of the summer.
Just to let you know that the PAR033 fire is still considered "out of control" and we (NEMI) are still under a "FIRE BAN", which means NO OPEN FIRES, including the use of burn barrels. As I have said many times before, if you see an out-of-control fire call 310-3473 (FIRE) and provide MNR&F with the best possible description and location (GPS and/or grid map identification) of the fire.

Just a friendly reminder that the FIRE BAN is still in effect which means NO OPEN FIRES. It has been reported to me that someone is burning trash out in the open. Remember if MNR&F determines that you cause a forest fire, you may be held responsible for the total cost of fighting the forest fire along with the cost of replacing any structures.

NEMI has issued a FIRE BAN. NO OPEN FIRES are permitted. Please remember that if you cause a forest fire which requires MNR&F to respond, you may be held responsible for the cost of their involvement. Call 310-3473 (FIRE) for all out of control forest fires.…Continue

Due to the lack of rain and the heat, our fire rating in now EXTREME. Therefore, I would strongly suggest NO OPEN FIRES. Remember, call 340-3473 (FIRE) if you see an unattended and out of control forest fire.
On June 22, 2018, we had our first reported fire in McGregor Bay on TP 1510. THANKS to the quick actions by Tom Williams and family, Grant Marolf, Jim Ferguson and crew, Andy Robinson, Ken Hitchcock, Sep and a few others who put the fire out using two MBA fire pump systems and one private fire pump system. MNR&F was contacted and they arrived to survey the area. The MNR&F crew said “job well done” so again I say THANKS!!!!! MNR&F has the fire listed as "human cause".

This shows what islands will have Rural designation. Only the very large ones will be Rural. The smaller ones are all 'shoreline residential'. This will not have any impact on our taxes as that is up to MPAC and not dependent on zoning.
Schedule E is the Bay of Islands and D is McGregor Bay…Continue
