Fire readiness is a high priority for Hindmarsh Shire Council. Roadside slashing forms part of a range of fire prevention activities which are undertaken in consultation with the CFA and are guided by Council’s Municipal Fire Management Plan.
Roadside slashing by Council is undertaken September - December each year, depending on weather conditions.
VicRoads undertakes slashing on roadsides for which they are responsible, during the same period.
