Council & CFA prepare for Fire Danger Period

Wednesday, 13 December, 2017

Council has been working with Country Fire Authority (CFA) over the past few months to ensure officers, staff and the community are prepared for the fire danger period in the Strathbogie Shire.

Council meets regularly with CFA, in a number of different ways, including the CFA Regional Manager briefings, via the Municipal Emergency Management Committee, and more recently as part of the Council Plan commitment met with the CFA Captains to better understand and strengthen our coordination of fire prevention measures.

Councillors and relevant staff also recently held a simulation session with CFA, where they were taken through a mock bushfire situation in the shire.

The simulation demonstrated how fire spreads based on weather conditions and explained effective firefighting activities.
