TAMS are warning that they’re marching on with their controlled burning program:
- The ACT Government wishes to advise the public that, weather permitting, controlled burns are taking place in a 14 hectare area of Kowen Forest from Wednesday 24 June to Sunday 28 June 2009.
The purpose of the ACT’s annual controlled burn program is to minimise fire hazards by reducing fuel loads in bushland areas. The program helps to reduce the intensity of potential bushfires, making them easier to control.
So once again, don’t panic.
