Where there’s
smoke, there are
controlled burns
Gold Coast City Council’s 2009
Hazard Reduction Burn Program
has kicked off ahead of the
summer bushfire season.
Fuel reduction burning is a
vital part of Council’s bushfire
management strategy for the city.
Hazard reduction burning limits
the amount of available fuel for
fires which drastically reduces the

risk of a major bushfire.

                                                 our centre for fresh food
As the Victorian bushfires
have demonstrated, gusty dry
conditions and the availability of
fuel can quickly turn a spot fire
into a major bushfire that can                    Handy location • Excellent service • Value for money
threaten entire communities.
Each year, Council works hard
to minimise the risk of major fires
and people can help prepare their
own homes by clearing away any
potential fuel for fires.
Minimal disruption is expected
during the burns and mail-outs
advising surrounding residents at
burn locations are continuing.
