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 Winter Burning Program to allow residents to learn how to safely reduce fuel loads with effective burns.
The 2017 Program will be held on six consecutive Sundays, (dates listed below). Sessions are presented by Shire officers and local brigade members and depend on weather conditions. Alternate dates will be offered if the weather is unsuitable.
- Sunday 23 April
- Sunday 30 April
- Sunday 7 May
- Sunday 14 May
- Sunday 21 May
- Sunday 28 May
Expressions of interest are promoted through the Shire's monthly Community Update page (printed in local newspapers), via the Shire's Facebook page and e-newsletter. Registrations are now open and close at 9am on Friday 19 May.
More information about the 2017 workshops is available under Current News.
