It is important to understand your responsibilities during the Unrestricted Burning Period. This includes:

  • If the Fire Danger Rating is Very High or above and/or a Total Fire Ban has been put in place then no burning is permitted. 
  •  It is your legal responsibility to check prior to undertaking any burn.
  • Health legislation is also still applicable.
