On April 11th, 2016 our Town was dev­as­tated by a fire which de­stroyed the shell­fish pro­cess­ing fa­cil­ity.

It was through the ser­vice, sac­ri­fice and pro­fes­sion­al­ism of mul­ti­ple fire depart­ments, we were for­tu­nate to re­port no in­juries, no loss of life and no se­ri­ous dam­age to res­i­den­tial homes in our com­mu­nity. The Town of Bay de Verde would like to give a heart­felt thank you to the fol­low­ing fire depart­ments: Bay de Verde, Old Per­li­can, Hants Har­bour, Win­ter­ton, Hearts Con­tent, Har­bour Grace, Bay Roberts, Car­bon­ear, Hearts De­light-Is­ling­ton and North Shore Fire De­part­ment for their hard work dur­ing this dis­as­ter. The Town would fur­ther like to thank those who pro­vided as­sis­tance such as Tri­con Ele­men­tary, Bac­calieu Lion’s Club, The Town of Old Per­li­can, local busi­nesses in the Con­cep­tion Bay North area and count­less res­i­dents in sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties. We may not have been able to re­spond so quickly to this emer­gency sit­u­a­tion with­out the strong com­mu­nity and re­gional sup­port that we re­ceived. It was the tire­less ef­forts of those who came out to help feed our fire fight­ers and pro­vide as­sis­tance at our evac­u­a­tion and man­age­ment cen­tre that made this sit­u­a­tion tol­er­a­ble. Fi­nally to all of the peo­ple who have taken the time to send us their thoughts, prayers and well wishes and to those who are con­duct­ing fundrais­ers for our Fire De­part­ment and Town, we thank you for your gen­eros­ity and thought­ful­ness. It is all very much ap­pre­ci­ated.

Thank You!
