Vehicle Movement Bans are put in place by the Local Government of the area at the direction of the Chief Bush Fire Control Officer (CBFO). The CBFO undertakes weather tests including;

  • Wind 
  • Wind gusts
  • Temperature
  • Fuel Load/Curing

If these readings are above a certain level, then a Harvest Vehicle Movement Ban in the Shire of Morawa is declared and a notification is sent via bulk text message. You can be added to the distribution list by contacting the Shire Administration Office on (08) 9971 1204 or emailing admin@morawa.wa.gov.au your contact information.

The bulk text messaging service is used to communicate notifications on Harvest Vehicle Movement Bans, Road Closures and other important information from the Shire. There is no charge for this service. 

There is no set time frame for a Harvest Vehicle Movement Ban as conditions can change rapidly, without warning. Therefore the situation is regularly assessed by the CBFO. For further information, please contact the CBFO as listed above.
