News Headlines For Mackay & The Whitsundays, Monday 13th August 2018

Residents are being urged to check their bushfire survival plan after a "Very High Fire Danger" warning was issued for Mackay & the Whitsundays. Speaking to the media, Rural Fire Service's acting superintendent Konrad Sawczynski said  "It is important that residents are aware of the FDR each day and know what action they will take in the event of a bushfire. The forecast very high FDR is not uncommon for this time of year, however it could increase later this month and beyond as vegetation dries out further. We need residents to report any bushfire to triple-0 immediately, as the sooner crews are on scene, the quicker we can contain the fire," he said. Check the current warnings here
