Moyne Shire residents are being urged to prepare to stay fire safe during the warmer spring and summer months.
Moyne Shire Council CEO Bill Millard said every resident had a role to play in fire prevention.
"There are a few key tasks you can do to help reduce the risk of fire damage, including keeping your grass short, moving wood piles away from the house, correctly storing flammables, getting rid of dry grass, twigs and bark and clearing out roof gutters," Mr Millard said.
"Council strongly supports fire planning and preparation, ensuring that residents and property owners have a clear understanding of the measures to be undertaken in preparing their home and properties for fire season."
Mr Millard said council was working with the CFA to reduce roadside fuels.
Council officers will begin property inspections to ensure all has been done to reduce the risk of fires across the shire.
