The Shire of Broome’s 2019 Bush Fire Mitigation Program started 1 April and runs until 31 December 2019.

During this period permits are required for burning vegetation within the Shire of Broome, with permits available by contacting the Shire Bush Fire Control Officers.

Property inspections to examine fire breaks and fuel hazard reduction measures will start on 15 May.

The Shire is asking property owners to ensure their property is maintained to minimise the spread of fire and allow emergency vehicles clear paths of access around the property.

Community information sessions will be held in conjunction with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services and Parks and Wildlife at 12 Mile/Skuthorpe on Saturday 6 April, and at the Boulevard Shopping Centre on Saturday 27 April.

For more information or to apply for a permit to undertake a controlled burn, contact the Shire Bush Fire Control Officers on 9191 3456 during business hours.
