The cooler months are the perfect time for people to consider how they will prepare their properties for the upcoming fire season.
To assist residents, the Shire has a Fuel Load Reduction Program to allow residents to learn how to safely reduce fuel loads with effective burns.
The 2016 Program will be held on five consecutive Sundays, starting Sunday 1 May. Sessions are presented by Shire officers and local brigade members and depend on weather conditions. Alternate dates will be offered if the weather is inclement.
Expressions of interest are promoted through the Shire's monthly Community Focus page (printed in local newspapers), via the Shire's Facebook page and e-newsletter. To register, click here.
