Name: Do your firebreaks meet minimum standards?



Recent rains and the milder weather have caused many firebreaks and vacant blocks to be covered by regrown grasses and vegetation.

Warmer weather has been forecast for the coming months, meaning once these grasses dry out firebreaks will be ineffective to allow safe access to emergency crews in the event of a bushfire, and vacant blocks will pose a fire hazard to nearby homes.

Residents are encouraged to check their firebreaks to ensure they maintain their minimal standards set in the City's Fire Control Order.
