Yay! The Wet has Arrived!!!

We are dropping to MODERATE HAZARD fire risk and there are no restrictions in force for High Hazard Activities.

Solid Fuel Campfire permits for SMALL evening campfires will be available on-line starting Monday Sept beer 16th.  Please be campfire safe and have a cleared fire ring or pit, water on site and a shovel as per provincial regulations.  Apply at

No yard waste fires allowed at this time.



Hazard Rating Drops to High

The Fire Hazard Rating drops to HIGH Hazard on Thursday.  This means that “early shift” high Hazard Activities can once again commence...chainsawing, excavating, lawn mowing etc.  Be aware that HIGH is still a significant fire hazard and we are not out of the woods yet, so to speak.  Watch your sparks and ignition points. 

No open fires (other than propane campfires).  Make sure your chimney has been cleaned before you light your inside wood stoves and your sparks grate is in place.

Salt Spring Station is still reporting at EXTREME so we are at the high end of HIGH hazard for wildfire conditions.  Please be careful.



Early Closing for Post Office on Thursday

The Post Office will close at 4:30 on Thursday September 12.  

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Yoga Classes - Waitlist and Second Class

Yoga starts Monday, September 16.

The 5:45 pm class is full and there is a waitlist.

I am contemplating running 2 classes on Mondays, with an earlier class from 4:30 to 5:30 pm class so as to accommodate those on the wait list. 

If this would be of interest to you please email me and state which class time you would prefer to attend so that I can assess whether or not to hold the extra class. 

Hoping this makes sense :)



2008 SAGA Scooter for Sale

2008 Saga Scooter by Benz with a new battery and carburetor.  It has 2854km and has been hardly used.  It is perfect for travelling on the ferry as you get on and off first!  

Priced for quick sale at $1000.00.  

Please contact Ken Redman at 250-246-2465 or email him at


Quick Reminder about EXTREME

We are still in EXTREME Fire Hazard here, as are the Salt Spring, Cedar, and North Cowichan reporting stations.  The fire weather forecast is for rain Sunday night or Monday and if that rain actually hits the ground here for three days we will drop to HIGH Hazard and early shift activities can start again.  We will post here on on the TIVFD website when HIGH RISK ACTIVITIES can begin again. 

 In the meantime, September is traditionally a bad month for fires because people enjoy the cooler evenings, the dew in the mornings, and even the morning fog and become complacent with fire.  But the woods are now at their driest and ponds and wells are low.  We all appreciate your vigilance and patience.  Soon enough we will be in Moderate and then Low and then snow!



Looking for a US Lawyer or Tax Consultant

I urgently need to consult a lawyer and/or accountant with expertise in US tax issues for Canadians.  

If anyone can recommend a suitable professional, please email me at 



From Emily at Fern & Fallow...

Thank you to everyone who came up for a breakfast or lunch at the Jollity Farm market in the last six weeks. We're all done with fresh-made meals for now but plans are in the works for more great food and extra special community focused events coming up. 

If you are interested in getting in touch with me directly, please find me at 

I'm happy to discuss any feedback, future requests or catering needs.


Something New & Appreciated

Recently retired to Thetis Island?  

The Thetis Island Volunteer Fire Department is looking for women and men who can commit to important and needed volunteering for the community by training to be a fire fighter.  Due to our islanders’ great vigilance and fire safety education, Thetis Island enjoys a very low structural and bush fire response.  

However, we train diligently for safety and ready response. We also operate a well-trained and professional pre-hospital First Responder medical program to assist residents and visitors safely to the next level of care.   The community, through taxation, supports the fire department infrastructure, operations and training to Provincial and National standards.  

We ask that you consider giving the community two or three years of service by joining the TIVFD and in return you will gain valuable skills and make lasting friendships. No experience is necessary.  The department supplies the equipment and trains once a week for two hours.  You need not be a super athlete but reasonably fit and your life experience in other fields and careers would enhance our skills base.  

We are starting a new recruit training class soon, and welcome your interest in membership. You may have never thought of becoming a fire fighter before, but all of our present members hadn’t either until they came out and discovered they could make a difference in others’ lives when they were having a bad day.  

We will be holding a Question & Answer gathering on fire department membership at the Firehall on Mission Road on Thursday, September 19th, at 7pm.  Please consider attending.

Habitat Farm Turkeys

The Thetis Island Livestock Co-operative is raising healthy, non-GMO fed pastured turkeys in time for your Christmas feast!

Reserve your turkey with a deposit of $50, and pay the balance upon pickup. Your investment will secure your turkey and offset costs to farmers, as they carefully raise them to the highest standards over coming months.

This is a first request for expression of interest. Please email Elisabeth at or call 250.416.6736.

More information about harvest options and cost details to follow soon.



Thetis Island Community Church

Daniel McDougall from Victoria will be speaking on Sunday Sept 8 at Thetis Island Community Church. 

On Sept 22 Norm Nicholson will be speaking. 

Services start at 10am and everyone is welcome.



Next Blood Pressure Clinic

The next BP Clinic will be Sept. 18th at the community Solid Waste Site from 09:30 to 11:30.rain or shine, under the canopy.  

If there is enough interest in continuing the Blood Pressure Clinic this winter, we will try to find another, indoor, venue for your monthly health check and visit with our Community Paramedic (until Forbes Hall is completed).
