Best news for a long time for Victoria in Australia. They previously got it wrong.

Fuel reduction/hazard reduction does not mean people have to walk around the state with drip torches, there are other safer and better ways of doing things.

Tasmania under our State Fire Management Council http://www.sfmc.tas.gov.au/ needs to follow suit seeing they followed that original knee-jerk decision to blacken the landscape without any consideration as to how it effects population health.

$28.5 million has been allocated to burn Tasmania at a time when this state is strapped for cash. Ridiculous.
