PUBLIC NOTICE

 

BUSH FIRES ACT 1954

PART III PREVENTION OF BUSH FIRES

SECTION 18 – RESTRICTED BURNING TIME (EXTENDED)

 

Pursuant to Section 18, subsection (5B) Bush Fires Act 1954 the Shire of Plantagenet advises due to season conditions the Restricted Burning Time will be extended a further 14 days to 28 May 2024.

The fuel load across the Shire is in a dry state and until we have substantial amounts of rain the risk to the community remains high.

Please note:  The Shire of Plantagenet encourages landowners/occupiers carrying out any burning off activities on their land, to please log their activities by calling DFES Communications on Ph: 08 9395 9209.  This will assist with volunteer resources unnecessarily responding to private Burns, mistaken as a reported fire.

This notice is dated 9 May 2024.
