Planned engineering work on Fire Project portals Firetrench.com

 

 

 

 

We have scheduled two periods of planned engineering work for this week.

On Tuesday July 7 between 12:00 and 22:00 hrs MDT we will be working on all firetrench.com and broadlyboatnews.com portals This work is not expected to be visible to readers visiting these portals unless there is anything unexpected.

On Thursday July 9 between 12:00 and 22:00 hrs MDT there will be further work on some firetrench.com portals. This may result in some portals being temporarily unavailable during the period of the work.

@Firetrench (facebook & Twitter) and @Editors (Parler) feeds will not be affected by the planned work, other than a possible delay in posting new items.

We thank our readers for their patience during any unavoidable disruption of service
