In the last week there have been 2 instances that campfires have been abandoned without being put out. It is vitally important to put campfires out before leaving the area.Please be responsible when having campfires as it is extremely dry and it wouldn’t take much to have a bad fire season.

DEBRIS BURNING INFORMATION

Please be advised that burning restrictions might be in place for April 1, 2010.

Darren Wilkinson, Cariboo Fire Centre, is hopeful that a restriction for Category 2 and 3 will be in place at that time.

This means that all machine piled debris, grass burns and hand piles will not be allowed (or to put it another way, only campfires will be allowed).

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Thanks for your support.

Email Notification

I have found and installed an email notification plug-in. The benefit is that any registered users will be notified by email once there is a post. For right now, it’s set for plain text. The HTML option is a little dark, so it would need to be adjusted. I’ve got to figure out how to subscribe to it. I’ll let everyone know when I’ ve got the subscription page done.

Let me know what you think.

I’m still looking for a good photo plug-in.
