Rural Fire Service opts for Harvest Safety Alerts

The new RFS safety alert will consider local weather conditions.

A new voluntary grain harvesting guide is set to help farmers and harvesting contractors determine if it's safe to harvest.

The NSW RFS will no longer issue a Cease Harvest request. Instead, a Harvest Safety Alert will be broadcast, so those harvesting can check safety conditions before continuing. This will allow for more localised weather conditions to be considered to determine whether or not harvesting operations should continue.
