It is hereby notified for public information and in accordance with Section 18 of the Bush Fire Act 1954 that the City of Albany suspended the Restricted Burn Time (RBT) in the NORTH EAST SECTOR (NES) of the City of Albany for 14 days from the 6th October 2017. The new start time for the RBT in the NES will be 20th October 2017. This time may change due to weather condition.

The City of Albany and the Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades will be carrying out a number of prescribed burns between September and October 2016.  Burns will be conducted when conditions are suitable for a cool burn to be undertaken.  DFES and other emergency services will be kept informed of these actions.  The City of Albany will be monitoring the forecast weather conditions to select the most appropriate conditions to undertake each burn.  All prescribed burns will be announced on the ABC Great Southern Radio (ABC630 AM), and signage will also be displayed in the area.

The City of Albany uses prescribed burns to maintain the biodiversity of the wide range of ecosystems in the City Reserves and to reduced fuel loads so that the impact of wildfires are not as destructive or extensive close to built up areas.

A list of areas planned for prescribed burning in 2017 is available at the City of Albany’s North Road Reception Desk.

Please direct enquiries to Darren Little, Fire Liaison Officer at the City of Albany on 9841 9254 during business hours.

These works will commence on Sunday 13th August 2017 and continue Sunday 20th and 27th August and Sunday 3rd and 10th September.

There will be traffic management in place so your patience is appreciated.
