Upcoming Prescribed Burns

​The CFS, along with Bushfire Management Committees and local communities, have identified high-risk areas for bushfire through the Bushfire Management Area Planning process, and as a result of this process some prescribed burns are now scheduled in the Adelaide Hills Council area.

Prescribed burning is regarded as a vital strategy  to improve the protection of built and natural assets from the adverse impacts of bushfire by reducing heavy fuel loads in strategic areas. Fuel reduction burning increases the chances of early fire suppression and provides a safer environment during the bushfires.

Upcoming prescribed burns:
Lobethal Bushland Park
Between Monday 10 September and Friday 12 October 2018 (subject to weather conditions)
Burns will occur in two stages
