The CFA has declared the first fire danger periods for 2019 for our area
The Country Fire Authority has declared the first fire danger periods for 2019 in parts of the Wimmera and Southern Mallee.
Northern West Wimmera, Hindmarsh and Yarriambiack central and north municipalities are now in CFA-declared fire danger periods with the restrictions coming into place last week.
Restrictions for Northern Grampians Shire, northern Horsham Rural City Council, central-east West Wimmera and the remainder of Yarriambiack Shire started today.
Fire danger periods are declared when CFA sets zero-tolerance fire restrictions on communities, which can start as early as October and continue to May the following year.
