UFFW Supports Ukrainian Firefighters

May 24, 2022

To: All Members of Local 867

From:

UFFW Recently transferred $2,500 in financial support to our Ukrainian Firefighter Brothers & Sisters who remain on the frontlines during these ongoing aggressions.

The IAFF is rising in support and solidarity with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters. As their country remains under Russian attack, fire fighters are standing strong on the frontlines, not in battle, but protecting the lives of Ukrainian citizens.

“It is difficult to imagine the challenges fire fighters there are facing as they continue to respond during a military invasion,” says IAFF General President Edward Kelly. “This union is proud to stand with them as they continue to serve their communities without hesitation. We pray they stay safe.”

As the Ukraine military is doing its job, fire fighters there are responding to structure fires caused by missile strikes and searching for survivors in blown out buildings.

The IAFF will continue to watch the situation in Ukraine and look for ways to support our Ukrainian brothers and sisters and the global community at large.

To: All Members of Local 867

From:

To all members attending the annual fishing derby,

The Game and fish has been in contact with big whiteshell lake lodge, whiteshell lake resort, Manitoba conservation, and the fishing derby isSTILL ON.

**IMPORTANT POINTS**

–          The province closed hwy 309 into big whiteshell yesterday to all but local traffic. We have confirmation from Manitoba Conservation that they are considering anyone attending the WFD fishing derby to be local traffic and you are permitted to use hwy309 using caution.

–          The boat launch at the south shore campground is closed.

–          The boat launch at the North Shore (Big Whiteshell Lodge) is open.

–          Liberty at the South Shore (Whiteshell lake resort) has kindly offered anyone attending the fishing derby to use their boat launch at no cost. She has asked that all members be respectful and mindful of the property and her patrons while you are doing so. She also asked that anyone using the launch that is not staying at her resort please remove you trailers and vehicle as soon as you are done launching or loading.

–          Liberty at Whiteshell lake resort still has a couple of available cabins for anyone requiring a place or that have been displaced due to high water. (Whiteshell lake resort (204) 348-7627)

–          The province has some special boating regulations in place for Big Whiteshell lake including a no wake within 100ft of the shoreline to help preserve property and prevent further erosion. A full list of regulations can be found on the Manitoba parks website to be sure you are operating your water craft within the rules.      (www. gov.mb.ca/sd/parks/)

–          Last but not least, I received a report today that fishing is good in the river!!
