FIRE BAN & FIRE DANGER RATING ADVICE FOR 07 January 2020

Issued at: 17:27 on 06 January 2020

TOTAL FIRE BAN-KANGAROO ISLAND


Despite a forecast Fire Danger Rating of 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 fire activity on Kangaroo Island, the CFS recommends that you implement your Bushfire Survival Plan.

If you don't have a plan to ensure your survival, leaving early before a fire starts is your safest option.

In making your plan, you should be aware that in high fire danger conditions, essential services including mains-fed electricity and water supply may not be available due to the prevailing weather conditions.

Landowners are asked to adhere to local harvest codes of practice which are available from your local council.

Landowners are also asked to ensure that any burn-off activities conducted today are fully extinguished before midnight tonight.

Agencies are advised to activate their Total Fire Ban procedures in preparation for these predicted fire weather conditions.
