adjoining where the burn will take place, was notified of this event and (b) the map circulated to a select number of Lyons properties did not indicate where in the Oakey Hill reserve the burn will take place.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

A hazard reduction burn was undertaken by the ACT Rural Fire Service (RFS) on Oakey Hill on Saturday 12 May 2012. An area of approximately 7 hectares was unable to be treated during the burn due to weather conditions. The RFS returned to Oakey Hill to complete the burn on 19 May 2012. No additional burns are scheduled for Oakey Hill Nature Reserve under the 2011-12 Bushfire Operations Plan.

(a) The RFS is responsible for notifying adjoining neighbours. Under approved practice, only those neighbours directly adjoining the burn area are notified.

(b) The Territory and Municipal Services Directorate provided a map to the RFS which illustrated the exact location of the burn. The RFS has confirmed that the map indicating the area of the burn was supplied with the letter box drop.
