Forest Fire Situation in the Temagami Area + TLA’s New Fire Pump


The Temagami region has been experiencing hot and dry weather over the past few days, which has increased the fire danger. In fact, there has been at least one small fire on the Lake (now extinguished) so far.

This is a reminder to please take great care with open fires while in the area, and completely put out all fires if you are camping.

To assist with fire management, the Temagami Lakes Association has purchased a new portable, Honda fire pump and accessories (see images below). These items are stored in the red wooden box on the TLA’s fixed dock (near the shore) and can be utilized by anyone in the event of a fire.
