Personal Emergency Preparedness - Are you Prepared?



Last year's Rock Creek Fire, and the current wildfire activity in Northern BC and Alberta, are good reminders that emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. Your own personal preparedness can go a long way in assisting you in managing the emergency and recovery afterward. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary has made a variety of guides and plans from PreparedBC available on their website to help residents prepare incase of an emergency in the area.




Are you FireSmart or FireDumb?






It may look like an old gas pump from the past but looks can be deceiving. This is in fact a new Electric Car Charging Station located at the Kettle River Museum in Midway. Kudos to the Public Works Foreman for combining the past and the present to create a unique home for the charging station.




The Village of Midway was presented with a Community Award of Merit from the WoodWorks! program of the Canadian Wood Council at the UBCM Convention last week. The award was presented for the wooden dormers at the Boundary Expo Recreation Centre (built using wood graciously donated by John Lindquist and Family from Rock Creek) and for the Villages support of the BC wood industry and its commitment to use wood.
