Issued for Mosquito Hill and Tooperang

CFS advises that a bushfire at Mosquito Hill in the Fleurieu Peninsula near Kokoda Road, Deep Creek Road, Trig Point Road, Olsen Road and Cleland Gully Road may threaten your safety.

This Bushfire Watch and Act Message is in place for the following area(s) Mosquito Hill and Tooperang.

 

The MOSQUITO HILL fire is contained but not controlled. The MOSQUITO HILL  fire is burning in Scrub within the fire boundary and conditions are continually changing with strong winds in the area.

The MOSQUITO HILL fire is still continuing to emit a large amount of smoke that is travelling throughout the Adelaide hills and Metropolitan area

People in the affected area are advised to close all doors and windows and stay indoors if the smoke is causing concern.

Road users are advised to use caution on the roads as smoke may reduce visibility.

 

 

What you need to do

Check and follow your Bushfire Survival Plan and prepare for a bushfire in your area. If your plan is to leave or you are not prepared, leave now.

Only leave if the path is clear to a safe place.

You should not enter this area as the roads may not be safe.

 

Well prepared and actively defended homes can offer safety.

Stay tuned to this radio station on a battery-powered radio for updates.

For information about bushfires, check the CFS website www.cfs.sa.gov.au or call the Bushfire Information Hotline on 1300 362 361.

Stay informed

Fires can threaten suddenly and without warning. Be prepared to enact your Bushfire Survival Plan without receiving an emergency warning.

The CFS cannot guarantee a fire truck will be there to protect your property so you need to:

  • Know what the bushfire dangers are for your area - visit www.cfs.sa.gov.au/incidents
  • On a daily basis, know the Fire Danger Rating for your area and what you need to do - visit www.cfs.sa.gov.au/firebans
  • Act decisively the moment you know there is danger
  • Watch for signs of fire, especially smoke and flames
  • Put your Bushfire Survival Plan into action (avoid a 'wait and see' response)

Look and listen for information on television, radio, internet, mobile phones and by speaking with neighbours.

Do not rely on a single source for emergency warning information.
