Please be advised that the fire department at this time can not take your bottles and cans due to Corvid-19 concerns.
If you could please hang onto them until further notice. At that time we will have a rather large bottle sort.
Thank you for understanding.
Hopefully this will be over soon.

Fire remediation has started from the Green Lake Snowmobile Clubhouse to Buffalo Ranch (access 7). They are thinning, pruning and cleaning up dead fall, 300 ft from the end of off shore property lines to create a fire break.

Fire Practice Day Change

New Firefighters Welcome!

No experience necessary, just a willingness to learn!

It was decided at the last fire practice to move the practice day from every other Saturday to every other Tuesday for the rest of the summer (end of September).

Next fire practice will be on Tuesday July 26 from 7-9 P.M.

Fire Practice will move back to every other Saturday starting October 1.

All activities are posted on our Calendar, and I’ll post any changes here.

 

 

Asleep at the Wheel!

I feel pretty silly not knowing how the email notifications were getting sent out on the account I was using until I got a reply from someone today! 😳

You will notice that the emails looked like they were coming from my personal email address! Well, I have since fixed that.

They should be coming from the admin email address now! 😀

Fire Practice

Boulevard Cleanup

Today’s fire practice involved some cleanup of the fire hall property out front. We cut down small trees along the ditch that restrict the views down the road when leaving the driveway. They are piled along the boulevard temporarily until the burning restrictions come off in the Fall.

Future Practice Site?

The second part of our practice was to go and inspect a cabin that someone would like demolished and we were asked if we wanted to burn it for fire practice.

In the past, the fire department has burned cabins in the past and it has presented a great educational experience for the firefighters! The rules

Before we can make any plans, TNRD and Forestry and Office of the Fire commissioner will have to be contacted to see what rules and regulations need to be followed. Right now there are burning restrictions on, but later when the restrictions are taken off, we may be able to get some practice on a real fire.

New Signs

Building Fund

You will also notice some new signs up as well. The new sign closest to the road is our fund-raising goal sign. The building fund is the one we are concentrating on right now. As was stated in the newsletter and at the AGM, our current building cannot house any of the newer trucks. We need the new building before we can get the new truck!


 

Website Address Sign

Peter McKie and I finally got the new reflective website address sign up! I think we are going to have to get some paint to spruce up the white sign.

Annual General Meeting

A reminder of the South Green Lake VFD AGM Saturday, July 9 at 10:00 A.M. It will be held upstairs at the Fire Hall at 546 South Green Lake Road.

We are having a guest speaker, Steve Law R.P.F. to talk about the prescription and what that means to residents and property owners.
