HOT CHRISTMAS - CFS - Warnings to Prepare

"The weather forecast is out! Hot! Hot! Christmas Day very hot!
"It is now too late to get a permit from SA Country Fire Service (CFS) to use a solid fuel barbeque, such as a Weber for Christmas Day.

Permits are only required if a Total Fire Ban is issued for the Fire Ban District you live in, if it is not a Total Fire Ban on Christmas Day solid fuel barbeques can be used. 

CFS Director Preparedness Operations, Leigh Miller said,
"Total Fire Bans for Christmas Day will be announced after 4pm on Saturday, December 24 – they will be available on the CFS website (www.cfs.sa.gov.au)," Mr Miller said.

"In the meantime we encourage people to think about alternatives, such as cooking with gas or electricity which can still be used on a Total Fire Ban Day, if they are within 15 metres of a dwelling, have a four metre clearance around the cooker and a responsible person on hand with a way of extinguishing a fire should one start."

To obtain a permit you will need to contact your local Council but bear in mind many Council offices may be short staffed leading up to Christmas so it may not be possible to process.

Eudunda RSL Celebrate New Website 

The local Eudunda RSL Group are happy to have had a new website developed for them by Web South.

Eudunda RSL President John Stephens said,
"The previous website looked good and functioned well and had lots of historic details on it, but Peter made us aware that more people are searching via mobile devices, and that the original website did not work well with those smaller devices.

"We hope you enjoy the new website, and plan on having the new years calendar published as soon as it had been firmed up.

"On behalf of all the members and committee I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year."

Editor: Wishing You a Happy & Safe Christmas and New Year 

This newsletter should be the last one for 2016 (I may break our Christmas holiday period if there is something urgent of community importance to get out to everyone) - but lets hope all is safe and good.

So from my family, Jenny, Luke & Toby and myself (Peter) we would like to wish you 
A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year.
