That this house:

  1. Notes that two days of total fire ban were declared in parts of the state on Saturday 3 and Tuesday 6 October and conditions were forecast a number of days beforehand.
  2. Congratulates the Tasmanian Fire Service on controlling the approximately 70 fires that broke out during 3–6 October 2015 and notes that many were lit in the days before the first total fire ban on Saturday 3 October.
  3. Appreciates the Fire Service bringing in an earlier than normal bushfire permit period in light of the predicted El Nino conditions which have the potential to lead to a long fire season.
