CFS Codes of Practice
The CFS, in conjunction with Grain Producers SA, Primary Producers SA and the State Government has developed new Codes of Practice for Broad Acre and Vegetation Pile Burning as well as for the use of Prescribed Tools.
The Codes take into account lessons learned from recent out-of-season bushfires. They are designed as a guide to the South Australian farming community. They cover:
- safe out-of-fire season land management practices
- safe use of friction cutting tools and welders which may be an ignition source for fire at any time of the year.
All of these Codes of Practice are under review.
