MICS Spring Notice

Hello Everyone


Well it seems as though the warmer weather has finally arrived. We would like to remind everyone to be careful and vigilant should you decide to do any burning at this time of year. We at MICS will be keeping an eye on the Ministry of Forests web page and will do our best to keep you informed of any bans or restrictions in place.  There are currently no bans or restrictions in place for our area but this could quickly change as things start to dry out and the weather continues to warm. 


Here is a link to information on having a safe and legal camp fire


Here is a summary of open burning regulations for BC and an explanation of the different categories of fire 


As always these links are available on


Please be especially careful on windy days and make sure someone is always keeping an eye on your fire. If you have any doubt whether it is safe or not to burn please err on the side of caution.


Have a great spring and a safe summer

Update on the building

Well its been a while since an update has gone out but that has not meant that work has stopped.  Over the last couple of months we have been able to get the inside of the foundation filled and have placed the drain tile and drain rock and have back filled the foundation as well.  As of this morning Friday morning we have moved the prefabbed sections to the building site.  Now the real fun begins as we prep the foundation for the building and then start to erected the building.


Attached are a few photos of the finished foundation.  We will be keeping you posted as we get ready for the next steps.     Thank You.  M.I.C.S find us on the web


FireSmart workshop

Mudge Island has an opportunity to send someone to

the Local FireSmart Representative Workshop that is coming up in Nanaimo
on February 6-7. Greg Hansen enrolled for the two day free workshop but will no longer be able to attend. Is there anybody interested in taking his spot?

The workshop will take place at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre
[1] starting at 8:30 AM and going until 4:30 PM each day.

Snacks and beverages will be provided and we will have a one hour break
for you to go for lunch, there are plenty of restaurant choices nearby.
Please dress comfortably and bring your own pen.You will receive the course material on the morning of Day 1.

This is a great opportunity for learning more about FireSmart for our community.

The thing to stress about FireSmart is it’s not just about cutting down trees. It’s a range of mostly small & simple steps homeowners can take to harden up their homes against fire if the bush goes up around them. Another thing to stress: these are hard-won lessons that have been learned by crews going in to burned-out areas like Kelowna & Ft. McMurray and figuring out why some structures survived while others did not.

We only have a couple days to confirm our spot at the workshop.

Please respond to this post or contact myself or Greg Hansen directly.

Cheers, Scott Flemming

RDN Rainwater Collection Rebate Program Open For 2019

The Regional District has opened up the rebate program for 2019. I’ve included a link. For anyone needing another cistern, I still have a few in stock. You can’t have too much water stored for fire protection, gardening, and household use. Thanks, Chad

Thank you to all the volunteers.

A big thank you to everyone that showed up to help strip the foundation. Many hands made light work 😀.

FYI in case anyone else was interested or waiting for the results.

We passed our 7 day test for the concrete mix and projection for the 28 day break is all good and above the 30MPa that was needed.



Thank you.
Philip Parsons


Another request for volunteers, sorry! Last time for this year I promise.
