Fire Slashing Program 2022

Council’s annual program to reduce potential fuel for bushfires includes mowing of grass in reserves and roadsides between October and January each year. Residents will see an increase in mowing in the lead-up to, and throughout, the fire season.

The Fire Slash Program is our way of getting ready, where we’ll be working to remove vegetation and grass that could become fuel in a grass or bush fire in our reserves and roadsides. This will mean that, should the worst happen and a fire breaks out in the Yarra Ranges, there will be less fuel on public land that could cause a fire to spread.
