5 Wing Goose Bay would like to advise the public that 444 Combat Support Squadron will perform marine rescue training over Lake Melville from June 13 to 26, 2017.

 

Marine Locator Markers – smoke markers – might be deployed from a CH-146 Griffon helicopter during this training. They will be expended at least 2 Nautical Miles away from shore, and well clear of any vessels.

 

Although the smoke marker is non-explosive, they can cause severe burns in the event they are not completely expended. These markers are 18 inch long cylinder shaped canisters painted in light grey. Residents are advised to exercise care if they think they have discovered one and should follow these steps:

 

·      Don't touch or disturb the marker.

  • Note the location of the object and leave the area.
  • Call the following number as soon as possible 709-896-6900 extension 7331 or 709-896-1637.
  • Report what you have found, and where you found it.
  • Follow any instructions you may be given.
