The Highlands has experienced wild weather over the past week and Bowral fire fighter Max Cottingham urged residents to remain vigilant about bushfire safety.
Mr Cottingham said it had been a quiet period for the Bowral Fire Brigade, but said strong winds had caused some problems.
“There have been no major incidents of late, we’ve mainly been called out for wind related incidents with power lines or fallen trees,” he said. “But it’s a timely reminder for people to keep their yards tidy and to have a bushfire safety plan.”
Mr Cottingham said Highlanders should keep their gutters clean and contact a tree arborist to clear out dead wood in trees.
“Don’t leave fire safety to chance,” he said.
The 2015/16 bushfire season officially begins on October 1, but the threat of bushfire may arrive earlier this year.
