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".

Checking this year's membership directory, I see that the phone number for Fire Emergency is wrong. It is printed as 310-3474 when it should be 310-3473. Please change the number in your directory.

I have been advised that the fire pumps are being placed in the pump stations.

According to the MNR&F website, our area is under moderate risk of forest fires. I would strongly recommend NO open fires and you should NEVER have an unattended fire. Not sure when fire pumps will be placed in the pump stations. I will keep you advised.
The fire pumps are scheduled to be picked up and winterized by October 15, 2017 and scheduled to be replaced by May 15, 2018. I also requested that any pump station threatened by high water be moved to higher ground.

Prior to 2001, Terry and I knew only a few people in McGregor Bay. When we came to THE BAY, we would only be here for a one or two week vacation. So, like many others, we would work around the cabins, fish and relax. Once we retired and started spending our summer months in THE BAY, we joined the McGregor Bay Association (MBA) and started meeting many great people from all parts of Canada, the U.S. and other countries. We have enjoyed many functions at Parish Hall, had great times at other…Continue
