Tasman council on bushfires’ and its ability to manage the conditions in its firefighting operations.
TASMAN fire authorities are struggling to contain blazes in the state’s west after a week of bushfires.
The fire service has declared a state of emergency in six communities and more than 카지노150 kilometres of state roads.
Tasmania fire crews are dealing with the worst threat to a life and property in the state.
“These fires are coming right at homes and homes are being destroye이천안마d,” said Major General Wayne Campbell, Tasmania fire spokesman.
Tasman has more than 300 wildfires a year and the fire situation has worsened with blazes in two community groups, he said.
‘No relief in sight’
Major General Campbell said he expected Tasmania’s fire service to deal with the blazes.
“The fire services are going to respond in a very professional way in this and that’s the situation right now,” he said.
“This is a very difficult situation for Tasmania but it looks like it’s getting a bit easier to handle.”
He said if there was a delay in the arrival of some of the volunteers, the situation could deteriorate more.
One woman in a neighbouring community is worried about whether she will make it to the nearest hospital because of the fire.
“I feel really sad for everyone and obviously we can’t know for룰렛 sure what’s going to happen, but obviously the firemen need to do their job,” she said.
Major General Campbell said the fire situation in Tasmania’s west was not being dealt with through traditional management, and the bushfire situation in other states was not being dealt with through traditional management.
“If these fires continue at the levels they have been there and in our current conditions, they are likely to cause significant human damage in Tasmania,” he said.
Tasman Mayor Mike Baird was unavailable to give a statement on the situation.
