Book a Ranger Program Up and Running Again

Published on Wednesday, 12 October 2022 at 1:15:59 PM

As bushfire season approaches again, our Shire Rangers are encouraging Denmark residents to do what they can to prepare their properties for the season ahead.

The annual ‘Book a Ranger’ program is back on, running throughout the months of October and November to help residents identify actions they need to take to prepare their property for the warmer months.

Residents can make a free appointment with a ranger who will come out and provide advice on compliance with Firebreak and Fuel Management Notice 2022/23.

Senior Ranger Charmaine Shelley said the ranger team is happy to help community members prepare for the upcoming bushfire season.

“When you ‘book a ranger’, we’ll meet you at your property and go through the requirements of the annual Firebreak and Fuel Management Notice with you,” Ms Shelley said.

“There’s a lot of important information in the notice so sometimes it can be helpful to go through the requirements and responsibilities with someone.”

“There are different ways residents can manage the fuel load at their property and by booking a ranger we can help provide some ideas and tips on how to prepare for bushfire season.”

“After last summer’s emergency, we all know the potential impacts of bushfire, so it’s important to get to work on these jobs now ahead of the drier months and ahead of compliance inspections which will commence soon.”

Ms Shelley also encouraged community members to consider joining a Bushfire Ready group or volunteering with their local fire brigade.
