BTIERA Volunteers – Vital to our Community

I would just like to give a thanks to the Tancook Fire Department for providing the LZO (Landing Zone Officer) and crew assistance in setting up the landing field for the Lifeflight (Medical Helicopter).

They provide this service on a 24 hr.  basis at short notice. They are an integral part of the team that allows us to provide the best possible care to our community.

Check Before You Burn

From March 15 – October 15, you must check https://novascotia.ca/burnsafe/ daily to find out whether it is safe to have a fire. This website is updated every day at 2 pm. All domestic brush burning and campfires must adhere to daily Nova Scotia burning restrictions as indicated on the burnsafe website.

If the website indicates that it is safe to burn, the Fire Chief recommends that you make a call to BTIERA’s duty phone just to let them know your burn plans. This is especially true for residents who live in the interior or more remote parts of the island. The number is 902-277-1379.

If you see smoke and suspect that it is an uncontrolled fire call 911.
