Restrictions during the Fire Danger Period

 

The Fire Danger Period is when CFA restricts the use of fire in the community. This is to help prevent fires from starting.

CFA declares the Fire Danger Period for each municipality (shire or council) at different times in the lead up to the fire season. It depends on the amount of rain, grassland curing rate and other local conditions.

The Fire Danger Period is NOT the same thing as a Total Fire Ban

Local municipality (council or shire) restrictions

Your local council or shire may have their own local laws about lighting fires. Contact your local council to find out what municipal local laws may be in place. Local laws may be in place all year.
