Residents can register for free burning workshops

‚ÄčShire of Mundaring residents are invited to register their interest for free burning workshops between now and September. 

Deputy Chief Bush Fire Control Officer, Cameron Greaves, said the ability to conduct planned burns on their own properties is an essential skill for property owners in the Mundaring hills.

"The workshops are run annually in the cooler months as the conditions are ideal to safely reduce the fuel loads around properties," he said.

"These workshops will teach you how to prepare, start, and manage small mosaic fires, with the help of Shire officers and qualified, local volunteer brigade members."

Hazard reduction burns must be conducted in the right weather conditions. For this reason, workshops will not be pre-planned.

Residents who are interested in expressing their interest in a workshop can email Cameron on bfco@mundaring.wa.gov.au or call 9290 6666.

Once registered, residents will be notified of workshops about 14 to seven days in advance, as appropriate weather conditions arise.
