Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for central and southern parts of AVON VALLEY NATIONAL PARK in the CITY OF SWAN

A bushfire WATCH AND ACT is in place for people in the vicinity of the Moondyne Convention Centre in the central and southern parts of AVON VALLEY NATIONAL PARK in the CITY OF SWAN.

There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is approaching in the area and conditions are changing.

The fire started near the intersection of THIRTY SEVEN MILE BREAK and the AVON RIVER in AVON VALLEY NATIONAL PARK.

WHAT TO DO

If you are not prepared or you plan to leave, leave now if the way is clear.

If you are well prepared and plan to actively defend your home, make final preparations now.

If you plan to stay and actively defend, do not rely on mains water pressure as it may be affected. You need to have access to an independent water supply, and start patrolling your property to put out spot fires.

Keep doors and windows closed and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.

If you are not at home, do not try to return as conditions in the area could be very dangerous.
