Total fire ban South Australia – a dangerous place to put a nuclear waste dump?

Total fire bans declared for most of South Australia, The Advertiser, December 1, 2018  Total fire bans have been issued for most of South Australia on the first day of summer.

The Country Fire Service’s state operation centre is ready to react to any large fires today as the mercury soars to 30C across the state before a possible storm late in the afternoon.

A severe fire danger rating has declared for the following regions:

West Coast, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Flinders, Mid North, Yorke Peninsula, Riverland, Murraylands, Upper South East, Lower South East and Mount Lofty Ranges

The official bushfire season has also begun today for Kangaroo Island and will run until April.

When total fire bans are declared, well prepared and actively defended houses can offer safety during a fire.

CFS State Duty Commander Nick Stanley told ABC radio certain activities that could cause a fire risk are banned during the fire danger season…..
