fire danger period declared – starts 14 Dec

The CFA have declared that the fire danger period will commence 0100 hours on the Monday 14 December 2009 in the Shire of Yarra Ranges.

After this date no burning off will be permitted.

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

Current CFA policy recommends that residents "prepare, act, survive, be fire ready".

It's essential that you prepare early, discuss it with your family and/or neighbours, but please make a fire 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 to prepare, act, survive, be fire ready.
