Applications now open for the Fire Management Contractors List 2020-21
Published on 09 October 2020
Mornington Peninsula Shire invites applications from local contractors to be considered for placement on the Shire’s Fire Management Contractors List.
The Shire's Fire Prevention Officers inspect properties in the lead up to summer and during the Declared Fire Danger Period to see if there are fire hazards needing to be addressed on private land.
Where a fire hazard is identified, landowners are sent a Fire Prevention Notice issued either under the Country Fire Authority Act 1958 or the Fire
Rescue Victoria Act 1958 to remove the fire hazard by a specified date.
To assist owners with carrying out the work, the Shire includes a Fire Management Contractors List with each Fire Prevention Notice sent. The
list will also be published on the Shire’s website.
Contractors may be requested to undertake works including slashing grass
and undertaking weed and vegetation removal.
If a Fire Prevention Notice has been issued, the work must be completed strictly in accordance with the requirements and compliance date stated on the Fire Prevention Notice.
The EOI is currently open and closes 5pm Friday 30 October 2020. Application forms will are available to download or complete online: mornpen.vic.gov.au/fmc
