TFB for the Mallee

A Total Fire Ban (TFB) has been declared for the Mallee tomorrow (8 February).

Tomorrow's conditions in the Mallee will be hot and dry with temperatures reaching the low 40’s.

Tomorrow, the Fire Danger Rating for the Mallee is Severe.

State Duty Officer Jamie Hansen said members of the community should make themselves aware of the fire condition and exercise their fire plans on a day of total fire ban.

“Tomorrow’s hot and dry conditions could make it difficult for firefighters to supress a fire should one start, therefore we are asking people to take heed of the Total Fire Ban conditions,” Mr Hansen said.

“People need to be aware of the increased fire danger and ensure your fire plan covers all possible contingencies.”

TFBs mean no fire can be lit in the open air or allowed to remain alight from 12.01am to 11.59pm on the day of the Total Fire Ban.
