Riverina bushfire danger period will start early

The Rural Fire Service is advising Riverina Zone residents that the official Bushfire Danger Period has been brought forward this year, set to commence on October 1.

It’s a month earlier than usual, the decision due to the region’s ongoing warm and dry conditions.

Inspector Scott Conlan is encouraging us to prepare our properties over the next couple of weeks, clearing out the gutters and any flammable materials around the yard, and also to revise our Bushfire Survival Plans.

Landholders can still conduct burns in the meantime, but they're advised to exercise caution.
