Burning is prohibited during a Total Fire Ban or when a No Burn Notice has been issued.
Key things to remember:
Check the Fire Danger Rating or whether a Total Fire Ban is in place for your area:
Residents are urged to complete a Bush Fire Survival Plan and to ensure all members of your household know what to do on days of increased fire danger if your home is threatened by fire.
Residents should prepare their property by removing flammable materials from yards, clearing gutters of leaves, checking hoses and (where appropriate) conducting hazard reduction activities.
