Due to a change in the forecast weather conditions, the Fire Danger Rating for today, Sunday 6 October, is VERY HIGH.

ALL FIRE PERMITS SUSPENDED

We encourage you to delay any hot works, such as grinding, slashing or welding until tomorrow.

Landowners must monitor the sites of burns they’ve conducted over the past month or more, especially where timber has been burnt, as these can reignite in the forecast conditions months after they appear to be extinguished.

If you see a fire without a fire truck please call 000 immediately.

Cooma Rural Fire Brigade and Fire and Rescue NSW Station 263 Cooma have contained the grass fire burning north of Cooma on the Monaro Highway.

Believed to have started by a slasher with temperatures of 15 degrees at time of ignition with no wind. This is a very big reminder of how dry the ground is and how fast grass fires can take hold and spread.

Monaro Police District assisted with monitoring smoke hazard over the highway and driver behaviour in the area.

SUPPORT THE SALVO'S
The Salvation Army have been supporting our RFS firefighters both locally, and around NSW, for many, many years, providing them with meals and refreshments to keep them going at the fire front.

If fire fighting is not your thing, but you'd like to help the fire fighting effort in some way, this might be for you.

Monaro Remote Area Unit, joined by members from adjoining districts, undertook recertification in helicopter winching skills today.

For those in Cooma that could hear a helicopter all day - this was it.

Well done to all involved. The Monaro Remote Area Unit is not just an asset to the Monaro District, but to communities both across NSW and interstate where they've deployed before and likely will again.
