Total Fire Ban declared for Wimmera

A TOTAL Fire Ban (TFB) has been declared for the Wimmera region tomorrow, Wednesday, 18 December 2019. 

State Duty Officer Greg Christison said tomorrow’s conditions in the Wimmera will be very hot with temperatures reaching the low to mid 40s and winds of up to 30km/h.

“Tomorrow’s conditions could make it difficult for firefighters to supress a fire should one start, therefore we are asking people to take heed of the Total Fire Ban conditions,” Mr Christison said.

“People need to be aware of the increased fire danger and ensure your fire plan covers all possible contingencies.

“Stay aware of your surroundings and if you’re travelling or in unfamiliar places, make sure you are aware of the local risk.”

TFBs mean no fire can be lit in the open air or allowed to remain alight from 12.01am to 11.5
