A workshop teaching the thousands-of-years-old Indigenous practice of cool burning is being held at Exeter on Sunday.
The Cool Burn Land Management Association will meet at the Exeter RSL Club at 2pm to teach the community about fuel reduction methods.
Cool burning reduces a bushfire's damage by clearing natural waste materials in a small area, such as dead foliage, and promoting plant rejuvenation during the early dry season.
CBLMBA president Bill Waldron said it was to educate and assist people to protect their property from bushfires.
He said at the forum people would learn about the skills needed including the appropriate time to do so.
"We're in the process of developing a handbook," he said.
"We're trying to get the whole community involved, there's been an enormous amount of interest in this."
In other news:
Mr Waldron said they kept records of the area burnt and the number of people involved and this information could be provided to emergency services after each burn season.
With each burn season normally in autumn or spring.
