MELON FUNDING BOOST REPORT BY
BRAD PERRY A WAIKERIE fruit and vegetable company will proceed with a $1 million project to market an alternative range of seedless watermelons. It was announced yesterday that almost $500,000 of the $20 million Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund will contribute to local business Red Earth Farmâ€™s bid to produce and
market a range of red armada watermelons. The Waikerie company, which has been operating for two years, will construct a 20 megalitre dam and water feed system to irrigate 80 hectares and produce around 5000 tonnes of seedless watermelons. A Red Earth Farms spokesman said the project will create new jobs in the region. â€œWhile we expect the project will create a number of additional new jobs, it will also generate development opportunities for our current staff,â€? the spokesman said. â€œOnce the infrastructure is in place and
operational, we anticipate a 60 per cent increase in production through exports to national retail and wholesale fruit markets.â€? Regional Development Minister Gail Gago said the grant will make Red Earth Farms the only consistent supplier of seedless watermelons in South Australia. â€œThe project will help diversify food production in the region and further showcase the Riverland as a national leader in innovative fresh produce,â€? Minsiter Gago said. â€œThe grant money will help establish infrastructure and equipment to produce,
process, pack and market the seedless red armada watermelons.â€? The $1.07 million project is due for completion in August 2012. The announcement comes after Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland chief executive officer Brenton Lewis told the Murray Darling Association Region 5 Committee on Monday that a number of promising applications to the Riverland Sustainable Futures Fund have been submitted recently.. â– Continued Page 5

Tourism agenda HAVING just returned from a trip on the Great Ocean Road, I brought back many interesting tourism ideas. Seeing how tourism is approached in other regional communities interstate was a real eye opener. Many of the interstate towns have a strong focus on history and we do too, to a certain degree. Why not have a museum based on our sporting greats? Why not put a replica boat on Lake Bonney to signify the history of the Blue Bird run? What I learnt is that there is plenty of room for improvement when promoting our history to attract tourists.

Riverland winegrape demand set to grow in coming vintage as...
Wineries discuss long term contracts By BRAD PERRY TALK is rife that major Riverland wineries are being offered five year contracts as the region prepares itself for increased demand for winegrapes. Riverland Winegrape Growersâ€™ Association chief executive Chris Byrne confirmed he too has heard rumours of long contract offers. He said there is already an evident increase in demand for local winegrapes ahead of this yearâ€™s vintage. â€œI donâ€™t have anything in writing to say there are five year contracts on offer but there is definitely an increase in demand for winegrapes,â€? he said. â€œThe increased demand would suggest that major buyers around the world are realising the product they need from the Riverland is no longer in oversupply.â€? Mr Byrne said growers and wineries should be wary about signing long term contracts. â€œYou need to have flexibility in your contract so there is a benefit for both parties, otherwise the contract will never work,â€? he said.
â€œA long term contract that doesnâ€™t have a reasonable provision for a fair price to be paid every year throughout that contract might look attractive on the face of it. â€œBut if the contract doesnâ€™t provide, for you as the grower, to make a reasonable income, then itâ€™s not a sound contract by any means and it is one we would urge growers
something up around 400,000 (tonnes). â€œBecause of the increased demand for our grapes, we hope to see an improvement in price.â€? With the winegrape industry also suffering from oversupply in previous years, Mr Byrne said around 20 per cent of Riverland growers have exited, creating the right balance.
We are now ready for...a very sustained period of reasonable prices. not to sign.â€? After a disease ridden season for many growers during the last vintage, Mr Byrne said the Riverland wine industry appears to embarking on a promising period. â€œThose who normally buy grapes in the region have been looking to secure supplies for the coming vintage in 2012, so that is very positive for us,â€? he said. â€œIt looks as though, if we have reasonable growing conditions, we might increase our yield again this year from 382,000 tonnes to maybe
â€œWeâ€™ve removed almost 20 per cent of our total plantings in the past three years and that has certainly helped us to return to a more balanced position and again, the increased demand from all of the buyers in this region for this forthcoming vintage would suggest that weâ€™ve got that balance about right,â€? he said. â€œIf the major wineries are getting orders from their big customers, then that suggests that they are no longer able to buy cheap wine out of the bulk wine market.
â€œThey have to, again, start buying grapes that will create a wine supply to their clients in the coming say 12 to 18 months and two year period.â€? Twelve months ago the situation for the local industry was looking bleak but the turn around has been extremely positive, according to Mr Byrne. â€œIf we go back 12 months we were just coming into an extremely difficult period,â€? he said. â€œThat caused growers to have to, as it were, spend a fair bit more money to grow their crop because they had to incur a lot more cost in terms of protecting the crops for harvest. â€œWe had a moderate increase in price last year and a moderate increase in yield, so now that weâ€™ve got this increase in demand coming through in the form of wineries requiring more supply for this year, it would suggest that weâ€™ve gone through the hard yards of structural adjustment. â€œWe are now ready for, what we hope is, a very sustained period of reasonable prices for the fruit that we grow in the Riverland.â€?

New River Docâ€™s CEO wants to raise profile By BRAD PERRY NEWLY appointed River Docâ€™s ED chief executive officer Eve Rogers believes the not-for-profit organisation must increase its profile in the community as many Riverlanders are unaware of the services it provides. Mrs Rogers, who took over from Lyn Gill last month, said many people are unaware of the services provided by the private organisation, such as an after hours GP clinic. River Docâ€™s ED, which operates from the emergency department at the Riverland Regional Hospital in Berri, has had a busy first year serving the people of the Riverland since its inception. â€œI donâ€™t think it has that much of a profile in the community at the moment, so it
actually needs to be right out there so people know that itâ€™s here,â€? Mrs Rogers said. â€œPeople know there is an emergency department because people presume thatâ€™s where they will go when they go in an ambulance but we do actually provide other services in regards to a GP clinic after hours.â€? Working in the medical profession is new to Mrs Rogers, who was previously employed at TAFE SAâ€™s Berri campus. â€œIâ€™m actually really enjoying the new challenge of being here,â€? she said. â€œGoing into the future I am looking forward to developing this company and actually improving its profile within the community.â€? Spreading the word about what River Docâ€™s ED provides
is vital for the community, according to Mrs Rogers. â€œIt is very important, not only for us in regards to maintaining the business but itâ€™s also important to the community because it actually does provide an extra service that they donâ€™t even know is here at the moment,â€? she said. â€œPeople do object to paying that gap fee but it is very important that they actually do that because we are not making any profit on it, it is actually just funding to keep that service going.â€? Once the upgrade of the Riverland Regional Hospital is complete, River Docâ€™s ED will be relocated into the new buildings, giving it the opportunity to expand its facilities and provide more â– CHALLENGE: River Docâ€™s ED chief executive officer Eve Rogers is hoping to continue to promote the emergency beds and a larger organisationâ€™s services in her new role. waiting room.

Transport services push By BRAD PERRY RIVERLAND councils and local government are putting increased pressure on the State Government to increase community transport services in the region. While it is understood State Government support for the proposed integration of the Riverland Community Passenger Network and the Murray Mallee Community Passenger Network Schemes is waning, those involved are still keen to push forward with plans to increase transport services in the region. By combining the two community services, it would allow the use of agency managed government vehicles to provide transport for the
disadvantaged. Murray and Mallee Local Government Association president Leon Stasinowsky said a lack of funding means the community transport service is unable to expand to meet demand. “As it is now, there is a transport system that goes sometime in the morning and then it is later in the afternoon when they come back,” he said. “We would like something that gives our residents, who haven’t got licences or are too old to drive or aren’t able, to at least be able to go to especially regional health and government offices at Berri. “If they can’t get to them it makes it pretty hard and they are
relying on other family members or people to take them.” Mr Stasinowsky said the current Riverland medical bus services are highly patronised and need to
out what the need is, where the transport is needed most, what towns need transport going from a to b to c and at what times.” While he understands funding
looked after here in the Riverland and the region as much as what the city people are.” Riverland Community Transport Committee member Mark Ward said building on and improving current transport options in the region is vital for the future. “If we want to make our region better and grow, then we’ve got to have transport,” he said. “I know (the State Government) answer will be they’ve got no money but at the end of the day, we’ve really got to start putting it to them and if you are going to cut back on all these facilities in our regional towns, then you have got to start looking at how we are going to access these facilities.”
If we want to make our region better and grow, then we’ve got to have transport. be expanded to run extra services, more regularly. “We have met with the Riverland councils and we are looking at ways to try and ramp this up and get it back onto the government’s list,” he said. “We are certainly in need but what we are doing now is to find

School shocked Barmera Playspace’s million dollar worth over worm theft By BRAD PERRY
By CALLUM TRIFONOFF RAMCO Primary School staff and students have been left stunned and disappointed after the school’s worm farm was ransacked last week. Approximately $100 worth of worms were stolen from the school’s worm farm at around 5pm last Thursday. The farm has been a popular and long standing activity for students and principal Jason Sheehy said the theft is hard to comprehend. “The kids and staff have put a lot of time and energy into building up that worm farm in past years and to have someone come in and take something that doesn’t belong to them is a little bit disappointing,” Mr Sheehy said.
“I guess every school has the odd occasion of vandalism but we are really disappointed this has happened.” Mr Sheehy said whoever is responsible somehow gained access to the worm farm, located in one of the school’s classrooms. “Someone was seen coming out of the room the other day,” he said. “That alerted (us) that something was going on. “They found a key to access the room and took what they wanted.” The school has decided to relocate the worm farm to prevent possible vandalism. “We’ve moved the worm farm to a more secure location,” Mr Sheehy added.
BERRI Barmera Council chief executive officer David Beaton believes the Barmera Playspace is worth close to $1 million. At the Playspace’s official opening at Sedunary Park on Tuesday, Mr Beaton said the efforts of the community and stakeholders has cemented the playground’s reputation as a top quality tourist attraction. “One of the important things is, we got roughly around $500,000 worth of funding but because of the group’s efforts, we were able to do an extra 50 per cent (of work),” he said. “The value here is probably $800,000 to $900,000 worth of playground because of their efforts.” While the Playspace has been open to the public since April, Group member Sue Whitbourne said the official opening this week acknowledged the work invested into the project. “We’ve been really well supported from funding opportunities from both open space and local government, plus a range of community organisations,” she said. An entrance wall will be construced within the next six weeks to also further display the efforts and contributions of sponsors involved in creating the Playspace.

The extension of the Barmera project has not yet finished, with the group receiving a grant of $20,000 to add further elements for kids and people with disabilities, including a trike track and swings.

so much community support behind this young group of people who have started this,” Berri Barmera Council Mayor Peter Hunt said. “This was started during the most difficult time our region’s ever seen and to have the full support of the community behind it, what we see today is because of that. “It doesn’t matter what day you go past this area now, there is always people here enjoying the facilities.”

NEW $499 JS46 By BRAD PERRY AFTER an â€œexhaustiveâ€? inaugural meeting of the newly formed tourism board Destination Riverland, the regionâ€™s image will be given an overhaul. The board conducted a six-hour long meeting at the Berri Resort Hotel yesterday, where it was decided the â€œunique and diverse productâ€? that is the Riverland needs a new marketing look. â€œWe have made the decision to contact and work with a number of the natural partners that exist in the diversity of the Riverland and to focus on the promotion, marketing and publicity of the extraordinarily impressive range of events,â€? Destination Riverland chair Joan Hall told the Riverland Weekly. â€œWe are also working, as a matter of some urgency, to establish an online presence under the banner of Destination Riverland, Tourism in
the Region. â€œAlready we are finding that there is an enthusiasm for, perhaps, a different focus on the way we promote and market tourism in the Riverland region as a whole.â€? Local business owners and those people with a vested interest in tourism will be given the chance to provide ideas to the new board. â€œWe are going to endeavour to work with ideas that are coming from the individuals involved with tourism from the commercial sector, industry groupings and the business sector, where they can assist and have their ideas looked at,â€? Ms Hall said. â€œI think it is fair to say that by the end of our meeting, while exhaustion was the order of the day, there is a genuine excitement and enthusiasm of the opportunities that are out there for us to grab with both hands.â€? Destination Riverland will use
the regionâ€™s unique qualities to refocus a marketing and publicity campaign involving online media and social networks. The board also received a briefing from the South Australian Tourism Commissionâ€™s regional marketing team on its plan to promote the Riverland and other South Australian regions. â€œThe Riverland is unique and one of the keys to driving growth in the regionâ€™s tourism industry will be to extend and build upon this uniqueness,â€? Ms Hall said. â€œIn the past week weâ€™ve seen the success of examples of unique tourist offerings, such as the Rose Festival, the Wine and Food Festival and the â€˜running of the sheepâ€™ in Barmera. â€œThese are the sort of events upon which we must build the Riverlandâ€™s tourism brand.â€?
Ward: Efficiencies must be recognised in basin plan By BRAD PERRY IF the Riverlandâ€™s historic irrigation efficiency is not recognised in the latest installment of the Murray Darling Basin Plan to be released next month, it is likely to go back to the drawing board, a basin group believes. Murray Darling Association region 5 president Mark Ward said the group has had continued to discussions with local irrigators and stakeholders and he hears the message loud and clear. â€œI think theyâ€™ve got to start to listen to us and I think Craig Knowles has shown that he is willing to listen and I am just hoping the people who are actually putting it all together are actually listening,â€? Mr Ward said. â€œI think they will be back here in six months doing it all again (if South Australiaâ€™s previously proposed basin plan irrigation allocation cuts do not change). â€œBecause we have become so efficient in the past, we have a little less improvement that we can make into the future than other areas can.â€? With Murray Darling Basin Authority chairman Craig Knowles visiting the region recently, Mr Ward said he is hopeful the region will receive a fair deal in the proposed plan. â€œThey (irrigation representatives) had a really good sit down and a talk with Craig Knowles and let him know exactly...what they feel is important and must go into that basin plan,â€? Mr Ward said. â€œThere is a big bucket of money up there for infrastructure and that type of thing and if we canâ€™t utilise that sort of money in South Australia we donâ€™t mind them using it up stream, as long as we get the credit off of our allocation restriction.â€? Phasing in water savings across the basin over a longer period of time is a better option than immediate cuts, according to Mr Ward.
â€œI think itâ€™s a much fairer situation if they have a timeframe from, say 2011 to 2019, and in that time acquire and build infrastruture and improve the efficiencies in that time to draw back that sort of water,â€? he said. â€œAll of these sudden impact (irrigator allocation cuts) around the place are going to have a very heavy impact on our regions, local towns, local communities and we canâ€™t afford to lose very much more of what weâ€™ve got. â€œWeâ€™ve already lost a lot of good families and good people in our industries and we canâ€™t afford, as communities, to lose any more.â€?

Environment group’s milestone By BRAD PERRY GLOSSOP volunteer Heather Shearer has spent two decades working with the environment, watching the Riverland's landscape change and grow. This month, the organisation in which Mrs Shearer is president, Friends of Riverland Parks, celebrates 20 years since it was formed. Mrs Shearer said working with the group began as a keen interest and has continued to progress with Friends of Riverland Parks undertaking revegetation projects, fox baiting, gazania control, maintaining and establishing walking trails
and biological surveys. She joined the group in 1991 after volunteers were being sought due to a lack of rangers. “The rangers saw a need for voluntary assistance,” she said. “There wasn't enough rangers, so they needed volunteers to help them with park maintenance and that sort of thing.” Most of the group's activities centre around Katarapko, Cooltong and Poogniook. There has been a number of projects Mrs Shearer has been proud to be involved in. “There were two projects we helped with, one was down at Loch Luna where
we planted saltbush down there and they are huge saltbushes,” she said. “The other (project) was we planted on a hillside... and we planted some pines and now we've got a whole hillside covered in pines. “Some of the revegetation projects have been absolutely fantastic.” The group currently has 35 members who will be celebrating its 20th birthday. Mrs Shearer saw the effects of the drought on local parks and wildlife. “The past few years of the drought, we didn't plant trees, not big plantations... because you just can't water them,” she said.

Barmera PS attends conference
■ TIME: Barmera Sheep Dog Trials organiser Bob Clark will be retiring from his role as organiser to concentrate on other elements of his life.
BARMERA Primary School has been chosen as one of 60 schools from around the counry to attend an internationally recognised environmental eductation event.
The three-day 2011 International Kids Teaching Kids River Conference, held in Adelaide from Friday will see Barmera Primary, amongst other schools, share its ideas on how to be ‘environmental
superheroes.’ Minister for Water Paul Caica will officially open the conference over 55,000 children will participate in teaching their peers through a variety of subjects.
RIVERLAND WE’VE GOT YOU
COVERED New towers now live at Alawoona, Yinkanie, Moorook, Cooltong and Glossop.
Bob calls it a day By CALLUM TRIFONOFF THE man behind the popular local event the Barmera sheep Dog Trials is calling it a day after nearly three decades as organiser. Running the sheep dog trials has always been an interesting challenge for Bob Clark but he has decided this year's event would be his last. Not being the main organiser of the trials will enable Bob and wife Rosie to travel the country together and for Bob to focus on his career. The trials have been part of Bob's life since 1983 and he is proud to have started the annual event in Barmera. “(The sheep dog trials) had three years at Smithfield Plains High School and then eight years at Northfield High School and then the rest up here, which is about 19, with Glossop High School,”
he said. Every year since the Barmera trials began, Bob has involved Glossop High School agricultural students. “The interaction with the students has obviously been great fun,” he said. “Seeing what they get out of it, the building of their self-esteem and then attempting things they may not have thought of (has been great).” Bob has many stories to tell from his long association with the trials. “One day, some sheep got out and people tried to help (get them back) and
they ended up all the way in the (town),” he laughed. “They got in the backyard of someone's place. “Another time, a sheep got in the lake somehow. “Mostly after a while they turn around and come back but not this (sheep), he was about 200 metres out (in the water).” Bob said a former Northfield High School student is expected to run the trials next year but he maintains he will still be involved in some capacity. “(Paul Doherty) has had 18 or so year's experience (in sheep dog trials),” he said. “He said he'd take it up and he'd be capable of doing it if we can find him a job down here. “If Paul takes over, I'll still give him a hand.” Last weekend's sheep dog trials gained worldwide attention after sheep ran down Barmera’s main street.

OF THE competitors at this year’s Berri 90 Ski Race Classic, current Open Men’s World Champion water skier Chris Stout is one of the best. Stout, who claimed the open men’s title at the 17th World Waterski Racing Championships last month, is expected to draw a large crowd when he participates at next weekend’s ski classic. His victory at Moreton Bay last month was an impressive accomplishment having finished third at the World Championships in Belgium two years ago. The Sydney skier also took part in the Queensland Ski Racing Championships, winning the men’s open title in 2010 and stands unchallenged as the leading competitor in Australian water skiing. Stout also has national and New South Wales titles to his name and will have a strong chance at adding another victory to his honour list at the Berri 90 Ski Race Classic. Meanwhile, two-time world champion (1999 and 2001) Stephen Robertson will also compete alongside stout at the Berri event. He has tasted success at the World Waterski Racing Championships in Spain and
the United States of America and will be another of the major attractions at next week’s Berri 90 Ski Race Classic. The veteran skier will team up with current world champion and water skiing icon Chris Stout and his experience and smarts in the water could be the key to success at the event this year. A regular competitor at the world championships since the early 1990s, Robertson has also raced at the Mildura 100 and the Southern 80.

River alive for ski classic THE roaring sound of boat engines will fill Berri next weekend as the annual Berri 90 Ski Race Classic comes to life. This year’s two day event will include some of the world’s greatest water skiing champions amongst 30 classes and 150 entries at the Berri Water Ski Club at Martin Bend. The major attraction will be the appearance of current Open Men’s World Champion water skier Chris Stout and former global dominant Stephen Robertson. Berri Resort Hotel 90 Ski Race Classic co-ordinator Loretta Scott said attracting big names in the sport will help pull a large amount of spectators to the event. “They’re skiing together behind a boat that won the world title this year called Blazen,” Loretta said.
You’ll see people water skiing at 180 kilometres per hour.
“Then we’ve got other teams that competed, such as Hell Razor, who won the Berri 90 last year. “The sister boat to that is called Hell Bent.” Berri’s Chris and Damien Philp will be two of the local contingent to compete in the event against ski racers from across Australia including South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Saturday’s feature event is the Baldwin Racing Berri Mayhem, where all top-class competitors go head-to-head. “(They compete) in a pursuit format,” Loretta said. “They do one fast lap and that gives them their qualifying position for Sunday’s event.” This year’s ski classic will be Loretta’s first as co-ordinator, after nearly 20 years in ski racing administration roles. She is encouraging people to attend the event, which also ties in with Berri centenary celebrations. “I’d be encouraging people to come and have a look at the sport,” Loretta said. “It’s different, you’ll see people water skiing at 180 kilometres per hour, not something you see every day on the river.” The aim for the classic is to continue to grow and earn a reputation as a high class event statewide, according to Loretta. “We want it to grow and we want it to eventually rival the speedboat spectacular,” she said. Attendance for the Berri 90 Ski Race Classic on October 29 and 30 is free and the event is fully catered. The start and finish lines will be based at the Berri Water Ski Club, with all races starting at 10am on both days.

& Safety Tips to help reduce fire danger
HE CFS is urging Riverland and Mallee residents to act now to prepare for the bushfire danger period. Officially, the fire danger period begins in the Murraylands fire danger region (covering the Riverland and Mallee) on November 15 and runs until March 31, 2012. However, residents should not wait until next month to start thinking about minimising fire risks around their property. The CFS has adopted a simple motto to help reduce the damage - both human and property - from bushfires: Prepare, Act, Survive.
Preparation throughout the year is essential to ensuring you, your property and your family survive a bushfire. Even if you are not around, there is a greater chance your home will survive if you have undertaken good preparation.
Cut the risk in your backyard
Property owners are well advised to remove any flammable material within 20 metres of a house. However, if this is not possible there are other options to cut the fire risk. You do not have to remove trees to create and maintain a defendable area around your home, although clearly the less vegetation nearby, the lower the risk of sparks FIRE DANGER SEASON or flames reaching your The lighting of ﬁres of any description within property. the Berri Barmera Council area will not be Any vegetation or litpermitted except those authorised through ter, particularly if it is dry, the Fire and Emergency Services Act, provides fuel for a fire. 2005 Division 8- Section 79, between Fire This is often what Danger Season. makes it difficult for fires Residents are therefore advised that all to be extinguished, parburning off for the clearance of their land ticularly if the leaf litter must be completed by the commencement of is deep. the ﬁre danger season.

Permits for Burning Off Sulphur Boxes permits are required for the burning of sulphur boxes pursuant to the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005. A site inspection must be carried out by the Fire Prevention Ofﬁcer prior to permits being issued. Appointments can be made by contacting the Council Ofﬁce. During the Fire Danger Season the Council may issue permits for burning. For further information, please contact Council’s Fire Prevention Ofﬁcer on 8582 1922.
to your home, you should not overlook the fire risk they also pose in a bushfire. Check with your local supplier or the manufacturer to see if covering these units with flywire will impact on their performance.
ticularly the windows. Burning shrubs can crack windows and allow embers to enter. They can also easily ignite wooden strtuctures, outdoor furniture and pergolas. Any shrubs around your yard should have the tops pruned well away from the lower branches of trees. Take a look at the trees in your yard. Is the bark loose, coarse and flaky? If so, it can increase the chances of a fire climbing a tree, creating ember showers and making life difficult for ground level fire fighters. Any accumulated debris beneath trees and shrubs, such as old bark, dead twigs, leaves or needles, should be removed. Once you have checked out your vegetation, turn your attention to any sprinkler systems in your garden or irrigation in your paddocks. Could this be activated in the event of a fire?
Your home structure Reducing fire risk is not just about cutting down on hazardous items and debris around your home, it is worth looking at the infrastructure of your home for ways you can improve its fire safety. Gutters and downpipes: Prevent
the build-up of leaves with the installation of leaf guards. If you do not have leaf guards already installed, ensure your gutters are kept free from leaves on a regular basis. Underfloor spaces: If your home is elevated and the cavity beneath it exposed, it could allow an ember to fly in and start an awkward, sometimes unnoticed, spot fire beneath the building. Reduce this risk by covering the cavity with non-combustible sheeting or even metal flywire. Roof: Tile or iron rooves are best. If you have a roof made from shingles or other flammable material, consider replacement, particularly if you are in a high fire risk area. The eaves should also be boxed to prevent sparks entering the home. Vents and crevices: Vents and crevices around the home also provide the perfect entry points for embers, particularly in windy conditions. The solution is simple; cover all external vents with metal flywire (it will also help reduce insect and spider entry to your home). Check for any gaps, particularly if you have timber cladding, as they too can be an invitation for embers. Air conditioners: If you have an air conditioner installed in your window, or an evaporative unit external
Fences: Fences can act as a good barrier against some bushfires, provided they are made from noncombustible materials such as metal or brick. Doors and windows: Ideally your windows should be shielded with metal flywire screens or shutters. Weather stripping should be placed around the inside of both doors and windows to eliminate any gaps.
General housekeeping Housekeeping around the home is an important way to reduce the risk of property damage and human injury during a blaze. Not only should you clear leaf litter, branches and grass from around your home and in the gutters, but you should survey the area for man-made fuel sources too. Pay particular attention to verandahs that might be an accumulation point for recyclables like paper, boxes and crates. If your woodpile is located adjacent the house, move it well away. Any chemicals and fuel supplies should also be stored remote from the house. If you have gas supplied to your home, ensure the vent pipe for the LPG cylinders is facing away from the house. Any fine fuels around the cylinders that could be sparked by embers should be raked away and removed.
Weather warms up, so does bushfire risk T
HE introduction of a fire danger period from November 15 simply means there will be a range of enforceable restrictions put in place to help cut the risk of bushfires. As well as some standard restrictions requiring permits for some fire
DAVID BEATON CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
risk activities, the CFS can also make the decision to introduce total fire bans if the risks are increased due to very hot or windy conditions. A Total Fire Ban may be declared for any one, or for all Fire Ban Districts, and will be released to the media on the evening prior to the Total Fire Ban day to coincide with nightly news broadcasts. The Riverland and Mallee is covered by the Murraylands Fire Ban District. With a few exceptions, no fires can be lit in the open on a Total Fire Ban day. From November 15 until March 31, 2012, all fires, other than those used for cooking and personal comfort, gas fired appliances for cooking purposes or electric welding equipment and gas fires used for other purposes require a permit to be issued.
FIRE AND SAFETY
Anyone needing to light a fire during this period need to contact an authorised officer through their local council to make an application. You can apply personally, by mail, email, over the telephone or via radio. The authorised officer will only issue a permit if he, or she, is satisfied the lighting and maintaining of the fire is, in all circumstances of the case, justified and that adequate precautions will be taken to prevent the spread of fire. Conditions of the permit are included on the document provided by the authorised officer. People applying for a permit will need to notify all adjoining neighbours, an officer of the council, the person in charge or any nearby government reserves and the local CFS at least two hours before the fire is lit.
