The NSW Rural Fire Service Mid Coast District is urging property owners on the Mid North Coast to exercise extreme care with any burning activities today and over the next few days with high fire dangers fueled by strong winds over the remainder of this week.
"We are asking any property owners to delay burning until more favourable conditions with little wind early next week' said Inspector Guy Duckworth
RFS volunteers have been kept busy over the last week responding to calls for assistance from property owners whom have experienced difficulties.
"Conditions are very dry across the Mid North Coast and fire danger is increasing even though we are still in winter which shows just how difficult a fire season we shall face" said Inspector Duckworth
"We are asking that all property owners exercise extreme care with any burning activity and they must notify all adjoining landowners and the local fire authority 24 hours prior to any burning, it is also a timely reminder for everyone to ensure they have a Bush Fire Survival plan in place" said Inspector Duckworth.
