The area of bushland behind the Pioneer Village Museum in Kangaroo Valley where the rural fire service will be conducting a hazard reduction burn this Thursday, April 12.

A planned hazard reduction burn behind the Pioneer Village Museum in Kangaroo Valley is scheduled for this Thursday, April 12.

The burn is part of the Kangaroo Valley Rural Fire Brigade’s proactive plans to minimise and limit bushfire threat and damage in the Valley.

The hazard reduction (HR) behind the village museum will involve fire appliances being onsite and controlled burning of bushland.

It will potentially mean significant smoke in the local area that could be visible from Moss Vale Road.

The work is expected to begin in the morning and continue throughout the day depending on weather conditions.  

Brigade members will also be onsite on Friday, April 13 to patrol and ensure there are no areas still burning.

The local brigade have liaised with all necessary groups and will continue to provide updates to the local community subject to any changes in weather conditions.

Should you have any questions please email the brigade at kangaroovalleyrfb@gmail.com or contact captain, Mike Gorman, on 0447 651 540.
