With the increase in temperature predicted s974dbbb0fea1adb277243037c0105592_dsa23856oon, Gisborne has been busy working with our surrounding brigades dealing with spreading fires in this cooler weather. We have three firefighters off at Yapeen, due back today, and yesterday, Wednesday 22nd January, Gisborne provided seven members to help crew strike team 0222 from Mountain Group when called to supplement the fire fight at a grass fire in Mernda . It’s a good time to remind people that with high fuel loads from the last few good years of growth, and the dry and hot start to the year, the risk of fire is high. Fire restrictions remain in place, and this is a great time to revisit or refresh your fire plan. If you’d like some advice on what to do, please call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667 (8am-6pm).
