Fire Restrictions commencing 20 November 2017 at 1.00am

November 13, 2017

The CFA Chief Officer, Steve Warrington, has approved the Introduction of the Fire Danger Period (FDP) for Mansfield Shire, commencing Monday, 20 November 2017 at 1.00am.

Now is the perfect time to clean up your properties by reducing fuel loads to ensure, if a fire occurs, it would have less chance of taking hold or spreading.

The CFA does a great job all year round, but if our community can use common sense and take responsibility for preventing fires by, it makes the CFA's job just that little bit easier.

If you're planning to clean up your property by burning off, please do so properly.  Out of control burn-offs and unregistered burn-offs can be a major and avoidable headache for our brigades.  Avoid burning off when high winds are forecast - not only on the day of your burn, but for the days afterwards.

Contact our Municipal Fire Prevention Officer, Kevin Murphy, on 5775 8555 for information about burn-off restrictions in your area.
