Recent Hazard reduction activity

Posted by mark.pryor on August - 26 - 2013

Illawong brigade has been involved in the recent Engadine hazard reduction burns last weekend on both days and is planning to support a HR this coming weekend at Woronora Heights.

These burns aim to reduce the fuel loads in areas adjacent to homes, with the view of providing an increased level of protection in the coming years, from wildfire.  Areas are generally aimed to be burnt on average every 7-10 years, with priority given to high risk areas.  All burning is dependent on the weather and there are very few opportunities each year to complete these activities, fingers crossed for next weekend.
