Bushfire Arson Launch – Shepparton

Shepparton community urged to keep alert for bushfire arson activity

Tuesday 8 December 2015

We are asking residents of Shepparton and surrounds to keep their eyes and ears open this summer to help stamp out deliberately and recklessly lit fires. Bushfire prevention is the responsibility of all Victorians.

“Victoria is one of the highest bushfire risk areas in the world, and fire activity affects us all,” Crime Stoppers Victoria Community Manager, Peter Brown said.

“The summer outlook is for significantly increased fire activity in Victoria, with the state having already experienced some serious busfhires. Highlighted within the past weeks with hundreds of fires across the state, many being suspiciously or recklessly lit.”

If you think you have information about someone in your community who is deliberately lighting fires or engaging in reckless fire behavior call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 for a confidential conversation or report securely online. In an emergency call 000.
