It’s that time of year again where we are putting out the call for local contractors to apply for our fire management contractor list.
As we head into the warmer months and upcoming fire danger period, we inspect private land for fire hazards.
Where a hazard is identified, landowners will be sent a fire prevention notice to remove the fire hazard by a specified date. A fire prevention notice is issued under the Country Fire Authority Act 1958 or Fire Rescue Victoria Act 1958.
We offer landowners support to carry out the necessary work by including a list of contractors alongside the fire prevention notice.
Work required can include slashing grass and weed or vegetation removal.
Contractors must fulfill a set of criteria to be published on the list. The fire management contractor list will also be available on our website.
Applications for contractors close at 5pm on Friday 29 September 2023.
