These hazard reduction burns are part of a planned bush fire fuel reduction programme designed to protect life and property from intense bush fires. Hazard reduction will not completely stop bush fires from happening, but can can assist firefighters with containment strategies and property protection.

All landholders, including private property, must treat bush fire hazards on their own land and prepare their own properties adequately and effectively to cope with bush fire.

Residents around the hazard reduction burn areas are reminded to take the following precautions:

  • Keep doors and windows closed to prevent smoke entering homes
  • Keep outdoor furniture under cover to prevent ember burns
  • Retract pool covers to prevent ember damage
  • Remove washing from clotheslines
  • Ensure pets have a protected area
  • Vehicles must slow down, keep windows up, turn headlights on
  • Sightseers must keep away from burns for their own safety
  • If you have asthma or a lung condition, reduce outdoor activities if smoke levels are high and if shortness of breath or coughing develops, take your reliever medicine or seek medical advice
