AIDER Program

(Assist Infirm Disabled & Elderly Residents) Do you know of any aged and/or disabled residents who could be vulnerable to bushfire in our area? They may be eligible for assistance from the RFS under the AIDER program to help them prepare their properties.

Fire Permits

Look here for information regarding permits to light fires. During the statutory bushfire period, you cannot light a fire without a permit. Dates may vary due to local conditions.
