Controlled burns reducing fire hazards

Volunteer firefighters from the six Collie bushfire brigades (Allanson, Collieburn-Cardiff, Collie Preston, Williams Road, Harris River and Worsley) have been busy reducing fire hazards around Collie by conducting several controlled burns over the last fortnight.

These have included planned and managed burns at Ewing Street, David Hay Street, Hull Road and Cardiff Blueberry Farm, as well as assisting Parks and Wildlife staff with a prescribed burn near Hoffmans Mill. Several more burns are hoped to be completed this spring before the summer weather starts.

We welcomed several new volunteer firefighters who have now done their basic training, getting their very first taste of fire operations at the David Hay Street burn.
