Capel early on fire prevention

The West Australian

Although winter’s chill is still lingering in the air, the Capel Shire Council is warning residents to start preparations for bushfire season.

The council’s 2018-19 Bush Fire Prevention Order provides the minimum standards for property preparation and fuel levels, which will be sent to all landowners with their 2018-19 rates notices.

Land owners are encouraged to start thinking now about what they need to do to lower their fire risk and allow plenty of time to complete the work before council officers start compliance inspections on December 1.

Contact the council’s Community Rangers on 9727 0222 for more information on compliance.
