Communities advised to exercise care during fire danger season

SA Police remind the community that this year's Fire Danger Season has been extended to April 30 in the Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Murraylands, Riverland, Upper South East, West Coast and Yorke Peninsula.

The Fire Danger Season has also been extended to May 12 in the Mount Lofty Ranges and metropolitan Adelaide.

Police urge communities to continue to exercise care during this period, ensuring that yards and premises are clear of combustibles, including rubbish and plant material, and keep lawns and grasslands surrounding homes and sheds well-maintained.

To learn more about what you can and can't do during the Fire Danger Season, including restrictions on the use of machinery, barbecues etc., please visit the CFS website.

Burnt out spot fires may indicate that an arsonist is practicing in your area.

Report suspicious behaviour during the Fire Danger Season by calling the Police Assistance Line on 131 444.

If you see a fire burning, or observe any situation where life or injury is threatened, please call Triple Zero (000) for urgent assistance.

Remember, bushfires start when we stop paying attention.
