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. https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/wildfire-status/prevention/fire-bans-and-restrictions/coastal-fire-centre-bans .There is currently a ban starting Thursday changing to campfires only and 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 http://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/public-safety-and-emergency-services/wildfire-status/fire-bans-and-restrictions/bcws_campfireposter.pdf
Here is a summary of high risk regulations for BC, https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/wildfire-status/prevention/for-industry-commercial-operators/high-risk-activities
As always these links are available on www.mudge.ca/mics
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
