Congratulations James and Kathleen
As this goes to print our Community Engagement coordinator James Wicking is on his honeymoon with his beautiful bride Kathleen. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate James and Kathleen and wish them all the very best for their future together.
The team will attend Glenorie Markets and are still available to answer your fire related questions and assist you with property protection while James is on leave.
End of the Fire Season
The end of March is the official end the Bush Fire season. You are no longer required to apply for a permit to light fires however regulations still apply, so before you light a fire please contact your local District Office to confirm regulations and give notification of intention to burn. NB: you are required to give notice of intension to burn.
Fuel Management Burns
Autumn is the time brigades plan to do Fuel Management burns. If your property backs onto a proposed burn you may notice brigade members in the bush preparing for the burn (members will always be in fire brigade uniform if on your property for this purpose). Stop by the brigade stand at Glenorie Markets to check on the progress of proposed burns.
For further information please don’t hesitate to call the station 9652 2017, leave a message and someone will get back to you. Visit the brigade stand at the Glenorie Growers Market, 4th Sunday of the month in the grounds of Glenorie RSL. You can also call your local RFS District office: The Hills 9654 1244, Hornsby 9883 2000 or check the RFS website www.rfs.nsw. gov.au.
