Today (February 13) has been declared a day of Total Fire Ban, due to a Catastrophic Fire Danger Rating for the Wimmera.
Many local schools will be closed, and to help ensure the safety of our community it is recommended that you:
– Limit outdoor movement
– Stay hydrated – it’s crucial to drink water, even if you don’t feel thirsty
– Adhere to SunSmart strategies if you must go outside: slip, slop, slap, seek, and slide
– Ensure your pets have access to shade and fresh, clean water
