Very high fire danger for Central Queensland

THE Rural Fire Service Queensland (RFSQ) is urging residents across central Queensland to be vigilant with heightened fire conditions predicted this week.

Very high fire danger has been forecast for Central Highlands and Capricornia areas today and in coming days.

RFSQ Central Region Manager Brian Smith said with fire activity ramping up across the State, it was crucial for residents to make sure they were doing all they could to prepare their homes and properties.

"If they haven't already, I urge residents to finalise preparations on their property and visit the Rural Fire Service Queensland website to download a bushfire survival plan so that no one is caught off guard," Mr Smith said.

"We are also asking people to ensure they do not throw cigarette butts out of the car window and be careful when operating machinery in grassed areas."

Further information on bushfire preparation can be found at www.ruralfire.qld.gov.au .
