Next meeting is Monday 14th April 2014 at 7.00pm at the Lake Clifton Hall, Tuart Grove Road, Lake Clifton.
See attached agenda.
As I suggested yesterday, the Shire of Waroona has extended the prohibited burning season to midnight 25th April. Let’s hope we have rain by then!!!
The formal notice from the Shire is below.
I have just learned that the Shire of Waroona has extended the period for which permits are required to 11th April due to the continuing lack of rain. It is also possible that there will be further extensions.
The Fire Control Officer, Gareth Davies, is not issuing permits as the fire conditions are still very dangerous.
People who live in other shires such as Mandurah should check with their local authorities but the Lake Clifton brigade strongly advises against any fires until we get some decent rain.
We will update this advice as soon as we hear any more information.
Hi BFR Facilitators
Due to the recent impacts to property this bushfire season, the monthly theme for April is ‘Water Supply and Pumps’
Please see information attached:
• Monthly Theme – Water Supply’s and Pumps – this theme has been worked in partnership with DFES’s Environment Branch
Please use the blurb and link below for Facebook pages / websites etc.
During a bushfire, mains water and electricity supply can fail or be cut off. Having an independent water supply can help save your property.
To adequately defend your home and surrounds an independent water supply of at least 10,000 litres should be available.
Check your pump and generator are in good working order before and during the bushfire season.
More information can be found at www.dfes.wa.gov.au
Please forward this information to your Bushfire Ready Groups / Street Coordinators, other brigade volunteers, community contacts and regional networks.

It is a long time since we last heard of a break in but sadly there has been another one in Capel Way Herron. They targeted the usual motorised toys etc so must have been organised with equipment to carry them.
Please be aware of any unusual activity in your area and do not hesitate to report anything suspicious to the police.
If other people have also been targeted, could you please leave a message on this web site or contact a committee member. If there are a few incidents, we might be able to get some extra police patrols.
Does anyone have a humane rabbit trap they are prepared to loan for a few days? The problem with haveing rabbit proof fencing is that is one does get in, it can’t get out again. If you can help please phone Graeme 9739 1484
