WITH extremely hot weather and winds across most of the state, SA Police is issuing a warning for people to be mindful of their actions and take care.

Total fire bans have been declared in every region of the state, while police patrols, as part of Operation Nomad, will target bushfire prone areas through the state.

These patrols are deployed to proactively detect fire activity or risky or reckless behaviour as well as focus on known arsonists within our community.

SAPOL is asking everyone is asked to be mindful of their behaviour to avoid accidentally or recklessly starting a fire, through the use of power tools, discarded cigarettes or hot exhaust from cars.

Anyone who sees suspicious activity in fire danger areas is asked to call the police attendance line on 131 444.

Growers urged to be proactive

SAPOL is also warning that the hot and windy weather conditions are conducive with dust storms highly likely to occur in unpredictable areas, which will likely effect visibility.

Drivers are warned that if a dust storm occurs, they should put hazard lights on, pull over to a safe spot away from the road and keep vehicles away from trees, where possible.
