CFA Chief predicts busy fire season
Victorians are being warned they face the first real fire season since Black Saturday.
Significant grass growth and less than average rainfall in the past two months has contributed to the worsening conditions.
CFA chief officer Euan Ferguson says they're expecting a busy fire season.
Areas classed at high risk include the Dandenong and Macedon ranges, Halls Gap, Bright, Kinglake and parts of Phillip Island.
Mr Ferguson said residents in the high-risk bushfire areas needed to make sure they were ready to meet the bushfire season and had an evacuation plan in place.
Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley agreed that the risk of bushfire is certainly higher than the previous few years.
"The Bureau forecast is very clear. It says we are going to have above average maximum temperatures, so it’s going to be in the high 30 and 40's” Mr Lapsley told Neil Mitchell
"And also...it's going to be above average minimum temperatures which means the overnight temperatures stay up,”
“If they sit in the 20's it means the fuels, the grass and the bushland, don’t get to cool off, they don’t take on any moisture and stay dry, and it means the day starts at a higher level of fire risk than if it is a cool night” he said.
I am writing in regards to these stupid laws regarding arsonists /firebugs they are supposed to get 20 yrs if they cause death or whatever ,then the next breath you tell us all arsonists have a psycho problem so cannot be punished to the full extent of the law ,bring back mental health facilitys to at least put these people somewhere . what ever happened to i have spoken to , or spoke to instead of talked topeter boswell Wednesday 23 January, 2013 - 9:20 PM
$70m scrapped from the CFA budget as they dont need it according to Ted & Co. No whinge or tears from this station when announced. Still time to reverse the decision before something happens. How about someone prove that all the toolies are down at Lorne, not at Spring Street.Colin Monday 26 November, 2012 - 12:41 PM
