Be Fire Ready this season
With the weather warming up and the Fire Season fast approaching, now is the time to prepare for the fire season.
Mernda is part of what we call the Rural-Urban Interface – we are a growing Urban area surrounded by Rural assets such as grass and bush land, paddocks and livestock. As we saw with the large grass fire to the west of Mernda Villages early last year and in the south of Plenty Gorge in Mill Park and Bundoora last season, our grassfire risk can become a risk to homes and people quite quickly.
Prepare you home now by cleaning out your gutters, servicing Air Conditioners, removing flammable waste from around your property and how Emergency Plans in place – one for if your property is encountering fire or if the local area is.
Also be aware of conditions as we start to travel again around our wonderful state.
Be Fire Ready, Be Safe.
