Department of Environment and Primary Industries Wimmera Fire and Land District Manager Russell Manning said forecasts showed that parts of Victoria were at above average risk of bushfire and grassfire this summer.

“With the dry conditions and at least a dozen fires already this spring, we have brought forward some of our annual arrangements to ensure we are fully prepared.

“This week at DEPI Horsham 15 new project fire fighters are undertaking general firefighter training, which has included instructions in bushfire management, equipment use, safe work practices and a range of other fire operational activities.

“They will be fully trained and accredited ready for fire work in coming weeks.”

Mr Manning said with the fire danger period commencing on Tuesday, fire lookout observers had now commenced work at Mt Arapiles, Mt Bepcha near Rocklands, Reids in the Grampians and Big Hill at Stawell.

CFA and DEPI have secured their fire aircraft earlier than usual this season. Mr Manning said two fixed wing fire bombers would be located at Stawell, a Firebird helicopter at Horsham and a fire spotter plane will also be located at Stawell.

“Given the dry conditions, the early start to harvest and the number of fires already this season, we are well prepared,” Mr Manning said.

“The helicopter will arrive four weeks earlier than usual enabling the two specially trained hover exit teams, which are flown in to remote fire locations, to be trained about a month ahead of schedule,” he said.
