News: 90% of WA at bushfire risk

Post by vk6hgr » Mon Dec 07, 2015 5:44 am

THE extent of WA’s fire danger can be laid bare for the first time.

In a move the Barnett Government said was a “moral obligation”, most of our state has been declared “bushfire prone”.

And new data shows nearly 12,000 buildings have been erected in high-risk areas such as Ellenbrook, Atwell and Wandi in the past three years.

:/ This is not good news. But it's the right move for him to say this.

It should hopefully mean people prepare this year.
