The Municipality of Tweed is still in a State of Emergency and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. The emergency control group continues to meet and are in a transitional stage. We have moved from the initial emergency response and are working towards addressing the remaining hazards. Once these hazards have been addressed, we will move into the recovery stage.
The current fire status is very high, and as a result of the of the tornado, there is a significantly increased risk of wildfires. Please be extremely careful if you are doing any burning and check the municipal website daily to see if a burn ban has been put in place. Fire permits are still expected, and all brush burning is required to be reported as directed on the fire permit.
The Municipality is working with the Ministry and other levels of government to assess property damages….
