ALIENS! FIRE! ALIENS! FIRE! ALIENS! FIRE! ALIENS!
CAPE OF FIRE – Call to ACTION
(extract of article by Steve Coe – November 2009)
The Glencairn Fire Committee is keen to work together with as many groups as possible to promote wider community awareness of the ever growing threat of runaway brush fires. These devastating fires have hit us several times in the past decade and were largely fueled by the widespread infestations of invasive alien plants, such as Port Jacksons and Hakea.
The CAPE OF FIRE website was set up to help South Peninsula communities and individuals understand the issues around fire risk and to make it easy to identify the most common invasive alien plant species. It is primarily aimed at creating awareness of the link between alien invasive plants and runaway wildfires and to give practical advice on eradicating this menace on private land, together with instructions about how to make homes fire safe.
