Prepare for bushfires

Published on 16 November 2021

Fire Danger Season for the Adelaide Metropolitan and Mount Lofty Ranges fire ban districts begins this year on 1 December. 

Council workers and contractors have been working hard to reduce the risk of bushfires in our area. 

Fire breaks have been mowed and cleared in the Para Escarpment – a high-risk area adjoining the Golden Grove, Greenwith and Wynn Vale residential areas. 

Maintenance has been carried out on fire tracks to give emergency service vehicles access and serve as fire breaks, while vegetation along rural roads and verges has been cleared. 

Along with these disaster risk reduction activities, Council resources may also be requested to support emergency services to respond to, and recover from, an emergency event. 

We may be asked to provide specially trained staff, equipment such as earthmoving equipment and trucks, and community facilities for emergency relief centres. 

It’s also important for you to be updated, informed and prepared as staying bushfire safe is a shared responsibility. 

Steps to take to get ready include: 

  • Visit the CFS website for details on how to prepare for the bushfire season 

  • Understand the fire danger ratings 

  • Put together a bushfire plan.
