Well if you think a few minutes of your time, to fill in a form so volunteers don't have to leave work, waste community resources to drive to your place because smoke is seen and reported, I certainly hope you are prepared to pay for the lost wages and running costs from your own pocket.
What bullshit is this have a job to light a fire and need to burn so no hazard later on.
I wish the people in the house next door to me would do that but they dont
Andrew Thomas the link for the forms we were talking about.
More beaurocratic forms to fill out.and every day no doubt.Monaro rfs doing everything they can to make it more difficult for you to manage your land.not so long ago you could burn between 7pm and 7am 365 days except on total fire ban days.now you have to spend a day ringing people who get annoyed about it filling out forms to satisfy a beaurocracy that does as much as it can to make burning off near impossible and barely worth it.Too many dumb beaurocrats and not enough people who know what they're doing.
With the winter weather across the Monaro being nothing but cold, bush fires are possibly far from our minds. Just yesterday 2 separate grass fires started from slashers, both of the fires were easily extinguished. These were both a result from slashing in frost cured grass. Before you slash ask yourself some questions. How dry is the grass I'm about to slash? Is my machinery in good condition? Do I have a fire extinguisher? You must carry on the machinery a 16L minimum capacity knapsack spray pump filled with water; or 9L minimum capacity liquid fire extinguisher; or 0.9kg minimum capacity dry powder fire extinguisher. Whilst slashing we recommend you have ready access to a farm firefighting unit with ample water to extinguish any fire outbreaks. Consider having someone as an observer to assist.
