Letter to the Editor-November 12:They say compost, I say fuel

AFTER recently attending a rural fire service open day and receiving an information pack, I observed the following: Planning to make a plan is not a plan and after the devastating fires down south and my time in the rural fire service, the status quo appears to be prevention is better than cure.

Why has the area of bush north-north-west of the town of Iluka never had a hazard reduction burn in the last 13 years that I have lived here and probably beyond? We are on a peninsula, no way out.

I observe the Green Corps and others clearing bush and leaving it on the ground. They say composting, I say fuel.

There is enough there already from 13 years of non hazard reduction. Maybe if enough residents stand up and be counted , and air their concerns, a solution may be achieved.

Peter Seawolf Johnson,
Iluka
