Coastal Fire Centre to enact a Category 2 and Category 3 open fire prohibition

Heading into Fire Season.

As we are heading into Fire, season couple of items MICS would like to bring to your attention for the upcoming season.



Be sure your address is easily visible from the road on a dark night.  Locate it beside your driveway or access point, to eliminate confusion over the correct access to use.  The time spent searching for your home may mean the difference between stopping or slowing the spread of the fire to the rest of the island. MICS is NOT a fire department so we cannot fight structure fires, but that does not mean the home owner cannot grab a hose and put water on the house or shed. Our goal is to contain the spread as much as possible. 



MICS Personal respond to incidents in personal vehicles with the 4 WAY FLASHERS ON.  Please allow them the right of way and sorry for any dust or speeding. 


WHATSAPP Emergency Group:

MICS created a WhatsApp notification group to keep the island notified about any emergency situations on the island. This group is for emergency use only and has come in handy a few times already.  If you do not belong to the group and would like to, please install the WhatsApp app from any devices app store and then add Philip Parsons 250-818-2879 or Dale Erickson 250-755-9994 as a contact and send us a WhatsApp message asking to join the group, please include your full name.   A reminder if you get a new phone or phone number you will need to reinstall the app or else you will automatically be removed from the group.


In case of a fire or emergency:

Please review this link In case of FIRE/Emergency – Mudge Island from our Mudge webpage and print out the first section and put it on your fridge.  Please always report a fire its best to be wrong about one rather than be sorry.
