The Fire Danger Season for the Adelaide Metropolitan and Mount Lofty Ranges fire ban districts begins on 1 December 2020.

To reduce bushfire risk in our area, Council has:

  • Mowed and cleared fire break in the Para Escarpment – a high-risk area adjoining the Golden Grove, Greenwith and Wynn Vale residential areas
  • Maintained fire tracks to provide emergency service vehicles access and serve as a fire break
  • Cleared vegetation along rural roads and verges

As much of the City of Tea Tree Gully is close to bushland, it’s important to be updated, informed and well prepared to avoid the danger.

Staying bushfire safe is a shared responsibility.

Preparing your property and having a bushfire plan will help the CFS, as well as yourself.

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

Council’s role is to support CFS and State Government directives by providing staff, who are especially trained to assist where needed.

Resources, such as community buildings, earth-moving equipment and trucks are also made available.
