POSTPONED / Parks and Wildlife Advise Fuel Reduction Burn for Lefroy

23 Mar 2020

Lefroy – between 24th – 26th March 2020

The Parks and Wildlife Service are currently working through planning a fuel reduction burn during this coming Autumn on Crown Land, as part of the state-wide Fuel Reduction Program which is aimed at reducing the bushfire risk to help protect lives and communities.

The total area of this burn will be approximately 315 hectares, and is likely to take 3 to 3 day/s to complete. Smoke may persist some days afterwards depending on wind conditions.

During burning operations public access to this area will be restricted. The public will be asked to remain well out of the burn site while the burn is taking place and for the following days until safety checks have been made along tracks and trails. Please comply with directions from staff or any signs if you are in the area.

There will also be reduced speed limit along Douglas Road, Lefroy. We ask that the general public comply and drive responsibly.

 If you have any queries in relation to this planned burn please contact Nat Brown, Fire Operations Officer on 0409 868 467 or Prospect Office on 6777 2179
