Mornington Peninsula Shire invites applications from contractors to be considered for placement on the Shire’s Fire Management Contractors List.

Where a fire hazard is identified, landowners are sent a Fire Prevention Notice issued under the Country Fire Authority Act 1958 to remove the fire hazard by a specified date.

Property owners often require a contractor to assist them to carry out this work on their land.

To assist, the Shire includes a Fire Management Contractors List with each Fire Prevention Notice sent.

Contractors may be requested to undertake fire management works on private property 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.

A compulsory information session for contractors will be held prior to the fire season.

Applications close 5pm Friday 28 September 2018. Application forms are available to download or complete online via the Shire’s website: mornpen.vic.gov.au/fpn

For more information, please contact the Shire’s Environment Protection Unit on 5950 1050.
