Fire Compliance Due by November 1

07 September 2022 4:16 PM

We’ve seen the devastating impacts of bushfire in WA and on the east coast in recent years. In a bid to prepare private properties in time for the approaching bushfire season, all properties must be prepared in accordance with the Fire Hazard Reduction Notice as of 1 November 2022.

Have you checked your Fire Hazard Reduction Notice? In a bid to prepare private properties in time for the approaching bushfire season, all properties that are not prepared in accordance with the Fire Hazard Reduction Notice will incur a fine as of 1 November 2022. There will be no grace period for infringements issued against properties not adequately prepared for bushfire season.

We’ve seen the devastating impacts of bushfire both here in WA and on the east coast in recent years and The City is continuing to work with community to ensure we are all as prepared as possible.

Research shows preparedness improves the resilience of the community. When people feel empowered to plan for emergency events, we see much better outcomes. The reality is it takes a whole of community approach and we all need to do our bit.

Residents are encouraged to download the DFES MyBushfirePlan app to start their preparedness journey. Your household should have an emergency kit packed and ready to go if you need to leave your home for a safer location. Remember to also think about your pets.

All properties need to be bushfire ready according to the Fire Hazard Reduction Notice by 1 November 2022.
