Residents in affected areas need to continue to monitor the ‘Fires Near Me’ App and RFS website to stay up to date. Listen to ABC AM 684 or 92.3 FM for emergency updates as these conditions may change throughout the day.
The fire risk is reduced but still remains. Ensure you enact your own property protection plans.
At this point all roads are open but are restricted for residential movements only.
Roads are currently being assessed and may be subject to falling trees and become impassable in affected areas. Council is continually assessing these areas and removing trees identified.
Residents are to avoid unnecessary travel in the fire affected areas as trees may fall without notice.
For the residents who have withdrawn from their properties and who live outside the areas affected, you should consider making an informed assessment and consider returning to home as fires are in bushland away from residential townships.
This situation may change pending weather patterns for the next couple of days.
