FIRE WARNING

A severe orange fire warning was recently issued as the country sizzled in high temperatures in the 20s.

Wildfires can have catastrophic impacts on animals, habitats and rural communities – with homes, properties and lives often put at risk.

The government has released a list of basic guidelines for all community members to follow in order to prevent a wildfire from breaking out.

Department of Agriculture chiefs have warned: “Do not light a fire in or near woods. You will be responsible if fire spreads from a campfire or barbecue.

“Only use designated barbecue spots when available. Soak barbecue embers thoroughly after use and ensure they are completely extinguished.

“Do not block forest entrances or roads when parking – access may be required by firefighters or forestry personnel in an emergency, their work will be made easier if the roads are clear.

“Be Prepared – Many hikers, cyclists etc. will have a cell phone, maps and GPS. These can be used to provide very precise location information if you need to report a fire to the emergency services.”

They advised that all fires should be reported immediately to the emergency services, via 112 or 999.
