The Eurobodalla Bush Fire Risk Management Committee is seeking input from the community on the upcoming review of the Eurobodalla Bush Fire Risk Management Plan.
Several workshops are planned for the public to participate in as part of the management plan review process. Representatives from the NSW Rural Fire Service, Eurobodalla Shire Council, Forestry Corporation NSW, National Parks and Wildlife Service, and Crown Lands will be in attendance to discuss the plan and initiate a constructive conversation on risk mitigation measures.
The workshops will be held on:
- 25 November at 6.30pm – Moruya RFS Brigade Station
- 26 November at 6.30pm – Deua River RFS Brigade Station
The Eurobodalla Bush Fire Risk Management Plan is a strategic document that identifies the community assets at risk and sets out a five year program of treatments to reduce the risk of bush fire hazards.
The current plan is due for renewal in 2016 and these workshops are the first phase of the review process.
The review of the plan is being coordinated by the NSW Rural Fire Service and any questions should be directed to Eurobodalla Fire Control Centre on phone 4474 2855.
