Fuel reduction burn planned for Sisters Beach

The Tasmania Fire Service will be conducting a fuel reduction burn on Wednesday 30th August at Sisters Beach

The burn is part of the state-wide Fuel Reduction Program, which is aimed at reducing the bushfire risk to help protect lives and communities.

The total area of this burn will be approximately 58 hectares, and is likely to take 3-4 days to complete. Smoke may persist some days afterward depending on wind conditions.

During burning operations public access to this area will be restricted. The public is asked to remain well out of the burn site while the burn is taking place and for the following days until safety checks have been made along tracks and trails. Please comply with directions from staff or any signs if you are in the area.

Further information about this burn is available by contacting the Tasmania Fire Service on phone 1800 000 699 or email FRU@fire.tas.gov.au. A map of planned burns is available on the TFS website at www.fire.tas.gov.au/Show?pageId=colWhatsBurningNow
