These two article from the Financial Review are the best I have seen on the current problems. They cut through the political garbage and the misinformation put about by people with no knowledge. As we all live in a fire prone area we need to know what really drives the problems and what can, can’t and should be done to minimise them. I hope these help to quiet some of the alarmist discussions and keep us all a bit more balanced.
I am still a big believer in fuel reduction but please don’t just burn you property without getting advice and have plenty of help on hand. Even in winter things can get out of control.

LCHRA says a big thank you to the Shire of Waroona for erecting kangaroo warning signs in Lake Clifton, including on Lake Clifton Road.
This is another success for LCHRA as we have been advocating for these signs which will alert locals, visitors and tourists to be alert for kangaroos. The Shire of Waroona is still working with Mains Road WA to get the same signs on Old Coast Road in the Shire of Waroona.
The City of Mandurah has also erected kangaroo/emu signs on roads in Herron.
This was the official opening of stage 1 of the Lime Kiln project in May 2019. Now stage 2 is set to go ahead in 2020.
LCHRA has been awarded a $20,000 grant by the Communities Environment Program 2019-20 to extend the Historic Lake Clifton Lime Kiln Day Use Site, on Newnham Road, to include a walk trail around the settling ponds. This will incorporate historic, Aboriginal and plant information. This will be a joint project with the Dept of Biosecurity, Conservation and Attractions.
Attached is a situation report from the Department of Health. It’s a bit long but it does contain some useful tips and advice for surviving the next few days. Stay safe.
