BLAZEAID, the farm fencing repair organisation, may be able to move into the Corryong area next week, Towong Shire's mayor says.
David Wortmann said if Friday's fire danger weather did not result in fresh large scale damage BlazeAid "would hopefully next week" be in the area.
The shire boss has been in regular contact with BlazeAid founder and president Kevin Butler since the impact of the blazes on farms became clear.
Cr Wortmann said it had been deemed too dangerous so far to establish a BlazeAid camp but there was a huge need for the voluntary fence fixers.
"It's just massive the amount of fencing that has been lost," he said.
"That will be months, if not years (before it is repaired).
"People will concentrate on their road fences first, but to do their other fences it could be years."
Mr Butler's wife and BlazeAid co-founder Rhonda Butler said the decision on when her organisation was welcome in the Upper Murray was the mayor's.
"We'll go into action as soon as we can," Mrs Butler said.

"We just need a place to operate out of, so we've got facilities for showering, cooking and camping.
"We might have as many as 40 volunteers that have a need on a daily basis and we need places where we can keep tools .
"We also need decent communication because we need radio contact for our volunteers out on properties."
She said Border volunteers were welcome to assist and urged those interested to check for updates via the blazeaid.com.au website.
BlazeAid has been operating in NSW fire-damaged areas for months and Mrs Butler said they would be visiting Adelong at the weekend to plan for assistance to be set-up to help those hit by fires in the Riverina highlands.
