Official Bush Fire period ends

The Bush Fire Danger Period is now over. This means permits are not required to burn. It doesn't mean you can just light up your pile burns though. There are a few things you have to do first.

1, You must call the Fire Control Center at least 24 hours before you intend to light up. This is during business hours only.

2, You must notify your neighbors at least 24 hours before you intend to light up. 3, You should ensure the weather conditions throughout the burn period will be favorable. 4, Once the burn is completed the burn should be fully extinguished with water. Do you need a fire permit? Have a look at this link showing the Standards for Pile Burning.

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
