Season change, but not for fires – CFS News

We have welcomed autumn and the nights have turned cooler but a reminder the bushfire season for the Mid North does not end until midnight, April 30.

Now is the time to also think about having your flues cleaned.

To date, the brigade has attended 138 callouts up to March 10.

February had seen six callouts: grassfire x 3, car fire x 2 and one helicopter landing.

March so far has seen seven callouts, with the brigade attending two grass fires and car accidents, a shed fire and car fire, as well as assisting with a helicopter landing.

There was a question from the public regarding what to do if they hear the siren from the station sound? What a great question.

All brigade members now carry pagers and a message is sent if we need to attend a callout.

Prior to pagers the siren would sound to notify members to attend the station.

The siren now will generally sound every Monday night as a test during run during training; no action required.

In the unfortunate event that a large fire/event could potentially have an impact on the town/area, the siren will sound.

The general public is advised to follow their Bushfire Survival Plan and stay informed by visiting the CFS website www.cfs.sa.gov.au, using social media, including Facebook CFS updates and SA Country Fire Service, and listening to the local ABC radio.

It is important to rely on multiple sources for emergency warning information.

It was exciting to see cadets back in the station again this year.

Until next time, stay safe!
