As you know, firebreaks have to be completed by 17 November. Word is that Waroona Shire will strictly enforce the 3 metre minimum width this year!! Mandurah residents of course are required to have theirs 4 metres wide on blocks 5 acres or more. Both shire require a 4 metre overhead clearance. The primary purpose of fire breaks is to allow access for emergency vehicles and the Lake Clifton fire truck is 2.4 metres wide so it makes very good sense to have your fire breaks wide enough.
