Prevention is the Best Way to Fight Fire!
This is a friendly reminder from your Oliver Paipoonge Fire Department that with the current drought conditions the fire hazard is EXTREME! We would like to take a moment to remind our community members that you are the biggest part of fire prevention. Please take note when completing simple tasks around the homestead. Projects such as grinding, welding, cutting should be done with extreme caution, as these tasks have the ability to start a fire and spread quickly in these dry conditions. We would also like to remind you when working outdoors, please be sure that all small motors have spark arresters. Taking small steps like these can help reduce the risk of fires within our community. Thank you and stay safe!
