THE development of a new truck
tyre outlet has been approved
by Light Regional Council's

The proposal involves the

Highway, in Nuriootpa, adjacent the
Caltex service station and former
Bridgestone tyre centre site.
The building will be constructed
from precast concrete panels and
Colorbond wall cladding, and have a
total floor space of 702m2, including
a tyre-fitting area, administration
section and storage space.
There will also be car-parking space
to fit 12 vehicles and four trucks.
The development will now
await approval from the state's
Commission before moving ahead.
The information we require includes:
• Date of Birth
• Where the baby was born
• Names of the people in the photo

ROSEWORTHY resident David
Hayman is now armed and ready
to fight fires, following his
recent grant success in the latest
round of the State Government's
Regional Capability Community
A farm employee, Mr Hayman
is one of 273 South Australians
to recently be presented with the
grant, which is worth up to $2500.
He said the grant will be of great
use and is very pleased to have
been able to purchase a firefighting
"With the Pinery fire coming
through, it was a bit of a wake-up
call for me because I was called
out to Barabba to help a friend out
to evacuate some horses...I was
able to go out there and evacuate
her and her horses, but we got
caught in the fire coming back,"
"I felt quite helpless and thought,
'well, there is nothing I can do
to really help', and there was no
way I could protect myself or my
house, really, as the fire came
"(This experience) gave me the
initiative to go on and put my
name down for a fire unit."
The unit will be used by Mr
Hayman to defend any properties
he works on, for himself or others.
A broad range of items are eligible
for funding, however the vast
majority of applicants seek funds
for farm fire units and increased
water storage capacity.

Emergency Services Commission

Brenton Keen said the grants are
assisting to prevent widespread
blazes throughout the area.
"Recent fires have had a
significant impact on a number of
communities and there is no way
of knowing when or where the
next event will occur," he said.
"Not all major events are
preventable, but, importantly,
the increasing number of these
types of equipment across the
state enables those at the scene
to act quickly, and increases the
likelihood of a fire event being
managed at the local level."
In 2016 and 2017, 34 grants were
distributed in the Adelaide Plains,
Barossa Valley and Light Regional
LATE last year, The Bunyip reported local
farmers impacted by the Pinery fire were
disappointed not to have received grants from the
Regional Capability Community Fund.

Commission manager emergency services office
Brenton Keen said, over 2016 and 2017, the grants were
awarded based on the value for money, geographic
location of the equipment, existing capability and risk
factors unique to the individual property.
"Whilst the primary target audience and the vast
majority of recipients are landholders, the intent of
the fund is to provide equipment where it can most
effectively protect life and property," he said.
