the fire danger period commences 1 december 2008

No burning off after 1 December

It's time to get your fire plan in place.

Current CFA policy recommends that residents "leave early or stay and defend", you need to make this decision today, not wait until there's a fire on your doorstop.

It's essential that you plan early, discuss it with your family and/or neighbours, but please make a plan.

The CFA has some really good information available on their website. The CFA also run local community meetings to raise people's awareness of their bushfire risk, and work with residents to turn that awareness into action. You can find out where your next local community meeting is by visiting this link.

Our fire plan lives on the side of our fridge, but come bushfire season, it's reviewed and placed fair and square on the front of the fridge for all to see. I urge you to go to your local CFA community meeting and so you can make an informed decision about whether you will leave early or stay and defend.

Please note fire restrictions will stay in place until 30 April 2009 unless otherwise stated.
