Fire Control 

Firebreaks 

Please remember that all firebreaks must be prepared within your property on or before the 1st November 2017 and maintained clear of inflammable material up to and including the 1st April 2018.

As per previous years the Shire will undertake motorised slashing of blocks in the Tammin town site, however, the below conditions will apply:

  1. The applicant must inform the Shire Administration Office by the 24th October 2017 if they require the Shire to slash the block.
  2. The block must be clear of metal, wood and other obstructions that could damage the machine.
  3. If there is obstructions and hand tools are to be used, the works will be at the hourly rate set in the 2017/18 fees and charges.
  4. The fee for a standard 1/4 acre block will be $77.00 GST included.

If there are any blocks which have not prepared their firebreaks, a fire prevention infringement will be issued by our local ranger services.

Burning Garden Refuse And Rubbish

The following rules apply during the Restricted and Prohibited Burning Times:

No fire may be lit to destroy garden refuse or rubbish, other than in an incinerator, on a day when the fire danger forecast issued by the Bureau of Meteorology is "Very High" or "Extreme" for that locality.

The following procedures apply to the burning of garden refuse or rubbish: Fires lit in an incinerator are permitted at any time of the day provided that

  1. The incinerator is properly constructed and will not permit the escape of sparks or burning material.
  2. The incinerator is located not less than two metres from any building or fence.
  3. The area around the incinerator is cleared of all inflammable material for at least two metres.

PLEASE NOTE: AN OPEN DRUM IS NOT AN INCINERATOR!

Fires Lit On The Ground

  1. Fires may be lit only between 6pm and 11pm each day and must be extinguished by midnight of the same day.
  2. Fires may only be lit on the ground provided the surrounding area is cleared of all flammable material to at least five metres around the material to be burnt.
  3. The person who lit the fire or the person left in attendance shall completely extinguish the fire with water or earth before leaving the fire.

Common Sense Precautions

Do not attempt to light any fire to destroy garden refuse or rubbish if conditions are windy. Have a garden hose connected to a tap and water running while burning is carried out. Do not leave the fire unattended at any time. The bigger the fire, the greater the risk of sparks causing a fire to escape.
