#Australian #Bushfires: State of Emergency Declared For NSW
January 2, 2020
The Premier has declared a state of emergency ahead of worsening conditions on Saturday, saying it would allow emergency services to provide safe access to roads, and to help people travel safely in difficult circumstances.
"We don't take these decisions lightly," she said.
"We're concerned that those conditions on Saturday will be worse than what we've experienced in the last few days and that is cause for concern given there are, as I said, too many active fires now."
