Fire Up!



Fire Up! is a program to help residents get fire-ready before bushfire season.

This year's Fire Up! program will see us attending free community events, where you can find out:

  • What are my risks?
  • How do grassfires and bushfires behave?
  • How can I prepare my house and property?
  • How do I protect myself and my family in a fire?
  • Is my farm as well prepared as it could be?
  • Where can I find out information about local fires?
  • What actions can I take to help my local fire brigade?

Event details will be posted to the Council Facebook page and the Council events webpage when confirmed, so stay tuned for events in your community.
