Today, 27 Local Government Areas commence their bush fire danger period. Residents and land holders should make sure they know the rules when it comes to the use of fire. Along with required fire permits, you must also notify your local fire authority and neighbours of your intent to burn 24 hours in advance. Today also marks the start of the new Australian Fire Danger Ratings System. Know the risk for your area and what you’ll do if a fire threatens.
For more information and to find out if your area is in the bush fire danger period, go to the NSW RFS website.
