Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador are reminded of the regulations that come into play with the start of the official forest fire season, which begins on the island May 1st, and in Labrador, May 15.
"The privileges of using our forests for activities like camping, fishing and hiking brings with it the responsibility to take care of our resources", said the Honourable Jerome Kennedy, Minister of Natural Resources and Minister Responsible for the Forestry and Agrifoods Agency. "The official start of the forest fire season is an appropriate time to remind people to be vigilant when they are in the woods and of the rules which come into effect in the interest of public safety."
During forest fire season, a permit to burn is required, at no cost, for lighting outdoor fires for the purpose of clearing land or burning brush within 300 metres of a forest. The lighting of fires for cooking and camping does not require a permit but certain forest fire regulations must be followed. Permits and regulations can be obtained at the regional or district forest management offices around the province. A list of offices can be found at:
Information on the forest fire season is available at:
The Town of Marystown has developed a new Marine Industrial Park in the Power’s Cove area, boasting 15 large fully-serviced lots (lots can be subdivided to meet individual needs) with plans for a laydown area and 1,000 foot wharf. Because of its ideal location – a well-sheltered, ice-free, deepwater harbour - this Marine Industrial Park is well-suited to take advantage of the opportunities in the supply and service sector, specifically oil/gas, fabrication and manufacturing.
A Marketing Plan is now being developed to hilight the attributes and benefits of the park. This information will be posted via a web link once it is available.
For more information on the Marine Industrial Park or to view a lot, please contact the CAO at 709-279-1661, ext. 227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
