Fire Control and Prevention

All land owners are required to install firebreaks by November 1st each year which need to be maintained up to and including April 30th the following year in accordance with the Shire of Dandaragan Fire Break & Fuel Hazard Reduction Notice.

FIREBREAKS

Firebreaks are a simple and effective method of protecting your property and the community from the effects of fire. 

Preparing for fire is a shared responsibility. The Shire has a role in setting the requirements for fire preparation on properties within its boundaries and checking that they are compliant.
