The brigade would like to remind residents and visitors that there are NO FIRES WITHOUT A PERMIT during the Bush Fire Danger Period which generally runs from 1 October 2016 to 31 March 2017, however this can may vary due to local conditions.
A Fire Permit is required for burning activities during the Bush Fire Danger Period. NO PERMITS will be issued until further notice Fire Permits help ensure fire is used safely and minimise the danger to you, your property and the community.
If you are going to burn please read THIS INFORMATION on requirements for permits to be issued. From now on they will be only issued for a 24 hour period. If that expires you will be required to apply for another one.
If you know of anyone going to light a fire please ask them. Have they gone the right way about it?
