Fire Spread Prediction for Saturday 1 February 2020

Severe fire danger is forecast across south eastern NSW and the ACT for Saturday.

Under these conditions, a number of fires will spread and may threaten properties. Embers may be blown ahead of fires and could start spot fires.

This map shows the potential spread of fire.


The dark red areas show locations where fire may spread. If you’re in one of these areas, you may be impacted by fire. If your plan is to leave, leave early and avoid being in these areas during the heat of the day.

The red dotted area shows locations which may experience embers. These may be blown from fires which are currently contained, or from fires as they spread. Watch out for spot fires and be ready to take action. If you choose to stay and are impacted by fire, you may not be able to leave.

If you’re in one of these areas:

Check your bush fire survival plan. Know what you will do if the fire threatens your area.Make final property preparations now.Leaving early is your safest option. Don’t wait until it’s too late, as roads may be impacted.

Stay up to date on bush fires in your area by checking www.rfs.nsw.gov.au, the Fires Near Me NSW app, social media and local radio.

If you’re in the ACT, monitor www.esa.act.gov.au.
