Bushfire near Bundabah in 2001

With the current bush fire devastation on the south coast, there has been a lot of discussion in the community about the possible threats to North Arm Cove. The greatest risk is probably from the north west. However, we have had previous fires in the Bundabah/Pindimar area where the smoke and ash have affected North Arm Cove.

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 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:
