Fire Pumps

I recently requested that Stillwater Marina place all of the tested fire pumps and gas cans in the fire pumps stations by May 15, 2019. As previously stated, EVERYONE should know where the nearest fire pump station is located and we should all have a list of people (not just me but neighbors and friends) to call for help if a fire should start. ALL fires should be reported to MNR&F at…

Fire Pumps

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).

Fire Ban

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.

Fire Ban

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).

Burn Island

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.

Fire Ban

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.

Fire Ban

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.
