Thought I'd post this as another thread got me thinking.
I've been doing lots of reading on fire risks and bans as hubby spends a lot of time up in the hills on his bike, we go along to support him quite a bit (and will most likely cycle out there in future) and also as we are considering towns out in the hills and beyond as possible places to live (now and in the future). Trying to get myself fully informed as to what it can really mean in terms of dealing with the fire risk when lives and/or home are in danger.
I found the SA CFS (Country Fire Service) website and its really useful, informative and updated daily.
The website is great and they also use social media to live update which is handy for us when on the go. Means we can both keep check on things and make sure we are informed in real time. Signal can sometimes be an issue depending on location but we are usually able to get a good idea of what is going on and where.
Its quite an eye opener reading about the fires breaking out already and 3 or 4 on the go on any one day (I am guessing this can go up as it hots up). I know the radio covers it all also with fire updates but having a website or ticker feed dedicated to it means I can check up anytime and get the news.
Anyways, useful stuff if some of the new arrivals or those planning on making the move are interested.
