As spring growth takes off and we look ahead to summer, now’s the time to work on fire prevention. Being fire ready is a shared responsibility between government, emergency services and the community.
Fire risk is significantly reduced when properties are well maintained.
Clear anything that could fuel a fire by:
- mowing your lawns so they’re no higher than 15 cm
- storing building materials and firewood away from your house and fence lines
- removing dead dry foliage, leaves and undergrowth.
This advice is especially important for vacant land. Over summer, we will be on the lookout for any fire risks as part of our Fire Prevention Program.
