Hazard Reduction Burns

The Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade can assist land owners in undertaking hazard reduction burns during restricted burning periods.  There is a suggested fee involved.  Please contact the City's Emergency Services Team on 08 9528 0333 for further details.

Parks and Wildlife also regularly undertakes prescribed burning in the area.  It is difficult to provide accurate notice of where and when prescribed burns will take place since the decision to commence a planned burn involves consideration of many factors.  The decision to carry out a prescribed burn is made on the day and is dependent on suitable weather conditions.
