Marsh Lake Emergency Services Society Invites
Marsh Lakers and all Southern Lakes Residents to a Wildland Fire Presentation
At Marsh Lake Community Centre
Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Please join us to hear about:
FireSmart – What is FireSmart and how can it help us?
Community protection from wildfire – some concepts in community protection
FireSmart at home – What home owners can do to prepare for a wildfire event
Marsh Lake has already had one brush fire event this spring which was extinguished with the help of Marsh Lake Fire Rescue, Golden Horn Fire Department and Wildland Fire crews including a helicopter. Let’s all be ready by knowing what we can do individually if a fire event occurs and how we can work toward prevention of a wild fire.
Judas Creek Residents:
As part of their commitment to safer communities, the Yukon Government has been working to assign a civic address to all residential properties in Yukon.
Your civic address consists of a house number and a street name. This address will help ensure that the fire department, ambulance or RCMP can quickly and easily find your home when they are called in an emergency. This civic address does not change anything for mailing or property tax purposes as your mailing address and lot number remain the same.
Your number plate has been provided for you by Yukon government and is available for pick up at the Marsh Lake Community Centre.
Another fun, successful Osteofit series comes to a close...many thanks to Ursula, and to our funder, Recreation and Parks Association Yukon. Hope to see you in the fall!!

It’s Spring and flowers and wildlife are out! Bears are in hyperphagia and they are desperately trying to fatten up on roots and bulbs. Please manage your attractants by following the recommendations in WildWise Yukon’s (http://wildwise.ca/tips-and-resources/#tip-of-the-season) backyard checklist and keep people, pets and wildlife safe!
Please report wildlife sightings and encounters to the TIPP line
Wildlife-safe property checklist
o Garbage, recycling and compost are stored indoors or in a bear-proof container.
o Lawns are mowed and weeded.
o Native and non-native plants that bears eat are removed from high-human use areas and playgrounds. Brush close to homes or along walkways is removed.
o Fruit trees or berry bushes are removed or have electric fencing around them and no fallen fruit are left on the ground.
o Vegetable gardens are fenced with electric fencing, and vegetables are harvested as soon as they ripen; or vegetable gardens are replaced with flower gardens.
o Bird feeders are stored away March-November or are bear-proof. Birdseed is stored securely indoors.
o Pets are fed inside and their food is stored indoors. Dog bones are not lying around the yard. Cats and other small pets are kept indoors when unsupervised.
o BBQ is clean and all grease and food residues are removed after each use. BBQ, meat or fish dryers and smokers are stored indoors or in a secure shed.
o Freezers and all food are kept in your house or in a secure, locked shed.
