Total Fire Bans and Ratings

Fire Danger Ratings are forecast by the Bureau of Meteorology during the Fire Danger Period, usually between the months of October to April the following year.

The Fire Danger Period is when CFA restricts the use of fire in the community. This is to help prevent fires from starting.
