Permits are now available in HM70 - for a limited time
It will be no surprise to anyone enjoying the fine weather on the Sunshine Coast, that the high fire risk season is fast approaching. The permits will be closed when we see Moderate Risk for a consecutive week, or when the risk rating exceeds Moderate.
Fire Prevention Regulations are your responsibility to follow. Operating a power saw poses a fire risk and you must carry a fire extinguisher and have a round nosed shovel with your fuel at all times.
If you need firewood, make it a priority to collect it soon. The longer we have dry weather, the less difference any rainfall makes to the fire risk. Permits will close for the season soon.
Stay cool and well hydrated; work early in the morning. IF you are not at your best, you will not be prepared to use your equipment to respond in the event of an emergency.
