Getting your property bushfire ready

13 November 2017

Fire season approaching

Alpine Shire Council is urging property owners to prepare their properties for the upcoming summer fire season.

With fire restrictions likely to be in place by December, now is the time to burn off suitable fuel, should this form part of your bushfire season preparations.

To prevent unnecessary CFA call outs, you are reminded to register your burn by calling 1800 668 511.

Residential areas are restricted to conducting small burns not exceeding 3 cubic metres in size, between the hours of 10am and 3pm. Please be mindful of your neighbours when burning. Council staff can authorise the extinguishment of burns deemed to be offensive.

Council’s Municipal Fire Prevention Officers will soon be undertaking inspections to ensure that the community is prepared and safe from fire hazards.

Please contact the Municipal Fire Prevention Officer on (03) 5755 0555 for any further information.
