Out of the frying pan, into the fire

From December (bushfire season), the Federal Government plans to move up to 400 asylum seekers into a detention centre at Inverbrackie in SA (bushfire zone).

The facility will be created basically by banging up a fence around 83 vacant former defence force houses next to the Woodside army base.

The Immigration Department says the Country Fire Service (CFS) in SA will try to teach non English speaking detainees about bushfire safety, including the 'stay or go' policy and how to evacuate the area in the event of catastrophic bushfire.

They’re what now, instructing prisoners about ‘stay or go’?
