The Fire Danger Season in the Lower South East does not conclude until 30 April 2018.
Residents are reminded that during this time they are required to obtain a permit from Council in order to light any fire, including fires for campfires and fires for warmth and comfort purposes.
Council will soon be issuing permits under the provisions of the Fire & Emergency Services Act 2005 for the purpose of burning standing grass and stubble. Landholders are reminded that they must pre-register their properties prior to any permits being issued.
Smoke from these burn-offs may make driving hazardous in some areas. Caution should be taken when driving through these areas. Any unattended fires should be reported to 000 immediately.
To enquire about obtaining a permit contact Council’s Fire Prevention Officers on 08 8733 0900.
