It's time to Fire Up!



Our Fire Danger Period usually extends into late April, and in the event of a fire you’ll need to act quickly and make decisions under pressure. Planning and preparing now will help you get it right when you need to. Fire Up! is for all residents and visitors, including the fire ready and the unprepared.

Fire Up! 2017-18

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?

Look out for Fire Up! information at these community events
