Dear KCGO members,
Regional Manager for Rural Fire Service, Tony Hazell AFSM has highlighted the importance of remaining vigilant when undertaking farming operations during the BOM predicted high fire danger over the coming week and that measures be taken to minimise the potential for unwanted fires.
Mr Hazell pointed out “that with Relative Humidity lower than 20% and strong westerly winds predicted the potential for a fire is high. Consideration should also be given to operations that may also ignite a fire such as slashing, grinding and hot works”.
