Stay informed, authorities warn Gippslanders

CFA district operations manager Alan Rankin implores all Wellington Shire residents to go over their fire plans.

“Don’t wait until you see smoke on the horizon before you make a decision as to what it is you’re going to do,” he said.

“Make sure you’ve got your plans, and your triggers, that you use to make your decisions and take your actions.

“We’ll do the best we can to respond resources to all new calls for fire, but understand they’re a finite resource.”

People should remain vigilant, continue to stay informed through multiple sources and monitor conditions.
