BAY and Basin residents have been told to expect smoke today as RFS volunteers take advantage of favourable weather to undertake a hazard reduction burn in the Berry Street, Huskisson area.
RFS district manager Superintendent Mark Williams said that whil;e weather conditions can hamper hazard reduction operations, the RFS is continuing to protect lives and properties by undertaking a number of recent controlled burns.
“Our volunteers will today be working hard reducing bush and grass fire hazards.
“This is an important part of protecting the community and reducing the potential impact of a bushfire should one occur.
“Volunteers will continue these activities whenever conditions remain suitable,” he said.
Residents have been reminded to only call triple-0 if they see a fire with no fire vehicle in attendance.
