Issued at: 16:49 on 03 January 2020
TOTAL FIRE BAN- KANGAROO ISLAND
Despite a forecast Fire Danger Rating of Very High, SA Country Fire Service (CFS) has declared a Total Fire Ban for Kangaroo Island tomorrow.
This is due to the significant fire behaviour on the Island. The CFS asks the community on Kangaroo Island to not undertake any risky or unsafe behaviour, that could cause more fires to start.
The Total Fire Ban will apply for 24 hours from midnight tonight to midnight tomorrow.
Due to the fires, the CFS recommends that you implement your Bushfire Survival Plan.
If you don't have a plan to ensure your survival, and it is safe to do so, please make your way to the closest Bushfire Safer Place.
Agencies are advised to activate their Total Fire Ban procedures in preparation for these predicted fire weather conditions.
