Below is a map showing the locations of the planned burns within your local area and a prescribed burning information sheet which gives describes the practice of prescribed burning.
More information can be obtained on the department’s website at http://www.dpaw.wa.gov.au/management/fire/prescribed-burning/54-planning-for-prescribed-burning.
A large version of this map can be found in front of the CRC building on our Fire Information Board.
The department has an extensive planning, consultation and monitoring process as well as a rigorous approvals process. While prescribed burning is not without risk, the department has implemented a deliberate and proactive risk management system to keep the risks associated with prescribed burning as low as possible.
There may be some inconvenience to people during prescribed burning which may include smoke affecting people and local communities and some roads may be impacted during burning. Where-ever possible, the department will try to minimise these impacts.
The department's daily burn program is uploaded on the departments website by 1000hrs each day (http://www.dpaw.wa.gov.au/management/fire/prescribed-burning/burns). Alternatively people can like the department’s Facebook page to keep track of burning operations (https://www.facebook.com/dpawwa).
