A hazard reduction has been scheduled off Tamworth Street, North Arm Cove. The intention is to have the burn completed sometime within the next month. As soon as ground and weather conditions allow we will commence. We will do a letter drop for residence that are close to the burn area a few days before the burn.

The brigade has been up at the proposed area carrying out mitagation work around the perimeter in preparation for the burn.  

Notice of proposal and map attached.

Our Community Protection Planning Coordinator, Inspector Ian Cook, writes ...

Currently I am in the process of reviewing North Arm Cove's Community Protection Plan, and attempting to begin producing a new set of maps (which will include new maps for the Interpretive sign at the hall).

It is important to show the progress that has made towards increasing preparedness of the community.

I note all of the identified Asset Protection Zones are either in place, or nearly complete, with treatment schedules in place.

Now is a good time for everyone to be thinking about preparing for the approaching bush fire season. For those in the community that may require or need assistance to prepare their home, the AIDER program may be able to assist.

The program helps people live more safely and confidently in their home in areas where bush fires may start, and aims to support our most-at-risk community members.

I would encourage those that may require assistance to read the brochure, and go to the website via the link to see what help may

Dear Community Members

On Tuesday 26th February, Mid-Coast Council staff accompanied by a contractor and myself conducted an inspection of the Asset Protection Zone (APZ) surrounding the Community Hall, along with the lineal firebreak installed along the Ridgeway. The aim of the inspection was to ensure that the APZ for the Community Hall (NSP) was meeting the standards for Asset Protection Zones, and that the lineal firebreak was still providing optimal separation.

I have been keeping a close eye on the Cove during the past couple of months. The hot dry conditions have provided the perfect environment for bush fire with many communities being affected.

With the festive season upon us bringing family, friends and holiday makers in to the community, it is important that we stay vigilant and aware of our surrounds.

Due to the installation of the new Electronic Fire Danger Rating Sign at the turn off of Gooreengi Rd the old FDR signs are to be removed. It is currently unknown when this is to take place. 

The Brigade has continued to update the old signs but it has become apparent that there is a timing issues when the old signs are updated compared to the electronic sign. Until the removal of the old signs it has been decided to remove the arrow indictors to eliminate any confusion.

Ian Cook writes :

What would you do if a fire was to threaten while on holidays?

As you would be aware we have experienced a very early fire season up and down the coast. Both Mid Coast, Northern Tablelands and the New England are experiencing prolonged fire activity. The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) is urging those heading away for the holidays to check fire conditions and have a plan in the event they are threatened by fire.

Locals travelling into the Cove during the last couple of days will have noticed the new solar-powered sign as you make the turn off Gooreengi Road. The Mid Coast Bush Fire Management Committee (BFMC) received funding to buy and install six of these Electronic Fire Danger Rating Signs within the Mid Coast Area. North Arm Cove/Carrington/Tahlee are beneficiaries of this initiative.

Committee chairman Ian Sirett said the installation of the signs came about after a review of:
