Our fire hazard inspection program helps keep our city safe from grass fires which is a risk in much of the City of Whittlesea.
We have a responsibility under the various fire acts to ensure the community’s fire risk is reduced.
One of the things we do to prepare for the fire season is to inspect properties to ensure there are no fire hazards such as:
- dead or long dry grass
- fuel such as dead branches, piles of cuttings etc
- wood piles placed too close to houses or fence lines
- other combustible material
