Newsletter for June, 2021
SUMMER IS A FEW SHORT DAYS AWAY!
MANAGING THE ELEMENTS OF MOTHER NATURE
Fire Season is upon us! The Kamloops Fire Centre introduced Category 2 & 3 fire prohibitions on Friday, June 11, 2021 at 12:00 pm. These prohibitions are applicable to our community. This prohibition will remain in effect until noon on Oct. 15, 2021, or until the order is rescinded.
These prohibitions apply to all public and private land within the Kamloops Fire Centre jurisdiction, unless specified otherwise by local government authorities. Anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a ticket for $1,150, required to pay an administrative penalty of up to $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs.
Do you ever notice during news coverage of wildfire devastation in neighbourhoods that some houses are untouched?
That's usually because their home/yard were managed with Firesmart principles. We're at a HIGH risk for property loss due to wildfires!
JOIN US! WRBP FireSmart Day- Saturday Morning, June 26, 2021 at 9:00 am
Sponsored by BC's FireSmart Program, the CSRD is providing a chipper and bins and will help us remove fire hazards, plus say thanks with lunch! (Restrictions permitting).
We will meet at the West end of the lower road where we will start with an overview from our FireSmart Rep, and then work on risks in common areas for the morning. You're free in the afternoon, however you may want to take advantage of the two FireSmart Reps who will be available to walk your lot and offer you specific free advice on how you can reduce your riskto property loss due to wildfire. Almost every lot has risks. If enough Owners participate, we can become a "FireSmart Canada Recognized Community" and get government $$ allocated to us annually!
Bring gloves, safety glasses, pruners, saws, rakes, etc. A side benefit- we get to know each other better and hopefully meet some of the new Owners!

Please review the following mooring diagrams on how to properly tie up your boats so when big winds hither bay you won't be scrambling to recover it, or worse, deal with the damage created.
'FLOATIES' AT THE DOCK
All inflatable items should be attached to the dock rings (not the swim ladders) while they are being used down at the dock. They are not to be left attached unattended. Options for storage: store in your boat or boat slip, take them to shore, or to your lot. We've had some accidents in the past and want to ensure that doesn't happen in the future. Please respect these guidelines.
COVID-SPECIFIC IMPACTS / GUIDELINES CURRENTLY IN PLACE AT WILD ROSE BAY INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
1. As of this writing, the boat launch bathroom continues to remain closed.
2. The playground will remain open subject to BC CDC conditions:
