Total FIRE Ban

A Total Fire Ban is in place in the Greater Sydney Region from NOW until tonight 21st January at midnight
During a Total Fire Ban no fire may be lit in the open. Fire permits are suspended during a Total Fire Ban. This includes incinerators and barbecues which burn solid fuel, e.g. wood or charcoal.

 You may use a gas or electric barbeque, but only if:

  • it is on a residential property within 20m of the house or dwelling
  • if it is a picnic area and the appliance is approved by council, National Park or State Forest
  • it is under the direct control of an adult
  • the ground within 2m of the barbecue is cleared of all materials which could burn
  • you have an immediate and continuous supply of water available.
For further information, look at www.rfs.nsw.gov.au or contact your nearest Fire Brigade.
