      Fire Danger Season ends in South Australia

      At midnight tonight the Fire Danger Season will end for all remaining districts in South Australia.
      This year saw the SA Country Fire Service (CFS) respond to fewer incidents than it has for five years but notably attended two major incidents at Sampson Flat and Tantanoola.

      State Coordinator Leigh Miller says this year's Fire Danger Season saw CFS volunteers fight the largest fire near Adelaide for 30 years.
      "About 3,500 CFS fire fighters fought for seven days to contain the blaze, which burned almost 13,000 hectares.
      "CFS volunteers attended to more than 4000 incidents including: bushfires, road crashes and structure fires.
      "I thank each and every one of our volunteers for the fantastic work and dedication during in yet another demanding Fire Danger Season."
      Mr Miller says now is the best time to begin preparations for next Fire Danger Season.
      "The winter months provide a great opportunity to prepare the home and discuss your bushfire survival plan.
      "Major incidents show us how vital it is to have a survival plan and to have the home well prepared in the event of a bushfire," he said.
      As the Fire Danger Season ends, the public is reminded to remain cautious when lighting fires and check with the Local Council on what restrictions may apply.
      New codes of practice on fire management are now available on the CFS website.
      "The three Codes of Practice give direction and guidelines on the safe use of fire outside the Fire Danger Season," says Mr Miller.
      If fire conditions worsen outside the Fire Danger Season a fire ban can still be declared.
      The districts ending the Fire Danger Season tonight include: Adelaide, Mount Lofty, Kangaroo Island, Yorke Peninsula, Mid North, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Flinders, Lower Eyre Peninsula, and the West Coast.


      Always worth getting the CFS app on your phone to get their alerts. Not just for fires but accidents, trees down and other alerts.
