Fire season starts

Two Wells CFS News

It has only been a couple of weeks since this year’s fire season started and we have already attended three large grass fires that were out of control.

One was very close to home being in Mallala and the other two were at Worlds End and Kudla.

At all of these incidents, water bombers were called in, and multiple CFS and MFS appliances were sent to contain the large fires.

We would like to thank the farm units for their assistance in the Mallala fire on Monday November 13.

We ask that although fire season has already started, you should still continue to tidy up your properties and ensure your bushfire survival plans are in place and up to date.

It is becoming very dry out there with this 30 degree weather and it will continue to so, so please keep updated via radio stations, the news, text messages, and the CFS website,  with incidents and warnings in your area and surroundings.

If there is a fire near you, ensure you remain calm and act on your survival plans.

Being out on the road during a bushfire is EXTREMELY dangerous.

Last minute evacuations are clearly not an option.

If you’re unable to get out safely and/or need help, dial 000 and ask for assistance.

Please keep in mind we are all volunteer fire fighters and spare our time to come and help the community in emergency situations.

We look forward to meeting you all at the Two Wells Christmas Parade.

Come and say hello and/or get a photo in our new ‘34’ fire truck.

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Stay safe out there this fire season and keep hydrated.

Thank you.
