The Fire Danger Rating tells you how dangerous a fire would be if one started.
It helps you to know when conditions are dangerous enough to put your bushfire survival plan in to action.
Ratings are forecast using Bureau of Meteorology data for up to four days in advance, based on weather and other environmental conditions such as fuel load.
The rating is your prompt to take action to stay safe.
What do the ratings mean and what should you do?
