Fire Permits Required from 1 October 2005
Fire permits are required for open burning during the Bushfire Danger Period. The Bushfire Danger Period commences this weekend, running from 1 October to 31 March.
Permits are required in order to reduce the risk of burn-offs getting out of control and becoming major bushfires. The permit system informs fire authorities of exactly when and where landowners intend to burn so they can plan for emergencies.
For further information, look at the Rural Fire Service website, www.rfs.nsw.gov.au, or call your local Brigade.
