CCANSW warns cemetery operators of catastrophic fire dangers in NSW

The savage bush fires devasting the east coast of Australia have had the NSW  Government declare the threat as catastrophic and, in consequence, a State of Emergency across New South Wales (NSW).

The Cemeteries & Crematoria Association  of New South Wales (CCANSW)  would also remind cemetery operators and administrators that they have a duty of care to provide for the health and safety of its staff and the visiting public coming into cemeteries, gardens and buildings.  A bushfire is an obvious threat to the health and safety of anyone caught in its path.
