DSE has released the draft Fire Operations Plan for consultation. The draft DSE Fire Operations Plan proposes several burns in our region in the next three years. Relevant maps, the draft plan and other associated details can be viewed at the DSE website (click here).
DSE are accepting submissions from the public until August 31 2012. Submissions can be emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org) or posted to:
Fire Management Officer
Murray Goldfields District, DSE
PO BOX 3100, Bendigo Delivery Centre 3554
Some other local organisations have already stated their positions regarding the proposed burns (e.g. see FOBIF website), while other organizations are considering their response (e.g. Elaine Bayes of the Fired Up Group can be contacted on email@example.com).
The Connecting Country committee of management are meeting early next week, where our organization’s response to the fire plan will be considered.
