I have just had confirmation from The Park that they have washrooms 6, 10 and the shower building water turned on now and these will be on for the Long Weekend. They will get the other bathrooms on after the long week end.


BRANDON POLICE SERVICE TACTICAL RESPONSE UNIT

0 comments

Once again the Brandon Police have asked to utilize the community and
surrounding area for a two day tactical training exercise. There will be
about 12 people and leashed dogs doing some tracking and search and rescue
exercises. Notices will be posted in the areas where they are training. On
Monday they plan to be on a trail on the east side of the Park and on
Tuesday in the area of the tennis courts. If visitors wish to observe they
may and they will stop their process to explain. I know in the past this
has been a small shock to see the ‘SWAT” team in town so we are looking to
notify your associations and encourage you to pass this to your members.

The Brandon Police Service Tactical Response Unit is once again planning
our annual training event in Riding Mountain National Park. The dates of
the training will be May 12&13th 2014. This year will be the ninth time we
have utilized the park for our training event. I have included an
Itinerary of our planned training for this year. This year as with other
recent years we will be doing public notification of our presence in the
park. We will be placing training notification signs in areas that we are
utilizing. We also have training notification flyers which we will provide
to other park guests. It is not our intention to have our training cause
any concern for other guests of the park. All members of the team have
been instructed to advise anyone who they meet that we are conducting a
training exercise. During most of the training events Officers will be
dressed in full Police Tactical gear including firearms. Please be aware
that at NO TIME will any of these officers be carrying any type of lethal
ammunition. All of the firearms used have been modified to use Simunition
(a type of small soap marking training ammunition similar to paint ball)
Extensive safety checks are conducted prior to the commencement of all
training activities. At the conclusion of all training events all areas
will be checked and cleaned of any items left by the Team.

If any one has any type of concern related to our training
please feel free to have them contact myself at (204)724-4061 I will be
available to deal with any issue that may arise.

We at the Brandon Police Service would like to thank you for continuing to
allow us the opportunity to train in your areas.


PROBLEMS WITH WATER

0 comments

We are not able to get the water on in the campground for this weekend due
to a number of issues with the harsh winter we had. I will try to ensure
that we have Third street on which includes the shower building by the May
long weekend. In June we will be turning the rest of the washrooms on.
Thanks for your patience

WATER SHUT OFF FOR THE SEASON

3 comments

The Park will be shutting off all water in the Clear Lake Campground on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 until next spring. Because of the tying in of the water lines to the existing lines it has become too difficult and too time consuming to keep the water on any longer during the construction.
