CFA Chief Officer Euan Ferguson returned to his regular Statewide Drive radio segment on Tuesday, which will continue fortnightly throughout the fire season.

Presenter Nicole Chvastek questioned the Chief on the radio bandwidth issue that has been prominent in the media this week.

Mr Ferguson said the issue was about planning for the future and further discussions were needed between State and Federal Governments. He emphasised that it would not affect what occurs this summer.

The Chief also discussed the fire season and said after a dry October recent bushfires acted as a reminder of the risks this season. He also took a call from a listener about a proposed pine plantation.
