Emergency services urge vigilance in upcoming hot weather
With expected high temperatures and extreme fire conditions forecast for Saturday, the Dimboola Police and Dimboola CFA are pleading with people to be vigilant in relation to fire safety.

Dimboola Station Commander Sergeant Darren Sadler said “It’s obvious that everyone needs to be highly vigilant during the next few months, and this weekend we are expecting Saturday to be a peak day in terms of fire danger.

“Local police and the CFA will work hard in preventing and responding to incidents, but we also need the community to play a major role in assisting the prevention of incidents.

“The CFA website is an important resource, especially the ‘Can I, can’t I?’ section for Total Fire Ban days. From a police perspective, we implore people to report any suspicious activity to 000 or Crime Stoppers.

“If you see something that doesn’t look right, or looks potentially dangerous, report it. It’s also a great idea to check in on elderly or ill neighbours when high temperatures are forecast.”

With the forecast extreme conditions, a Total Fire Ban has been declared for the whole state of Victoria for Saturday.
