Are you bushfire prepared?
Getting ready for bushfire season is everyone's responsibility. Our volunteers in the Bush Fire Brigades, Fire & Rescue Service and State Emergency Service as well as the Shire's own staff, Department of Fire & Emergency Services and Department of Parks & Wildlife all do a remarkable job to keep us safe. Getting your own property ready will assist them in the event of an emergency.
So what should I do?
First and foremost, comply with the Firebreak and Fuel Hazard Reduction Notice
Do not rely on scheme water during a bushfire, download Water Corporation bushfire information.
Make yourself familiar with the alerts and warnings systems on the DFES website.
After reading the DFES information, if you have any questions about being prepared, contact the Shire's Ranger and Emergency Services on 9771 7777.
