Fire and smoke

Fire safety. Burn off permits. Report illegal burning. Report excessive smoke.

We have put together a series of plans and strategies to make sure we are ready and prepared in case of fire. For all emergencies dial 000.
You need a permit if you wish to burn off grass, weeds or other vegetation on your property outside of the CFA declared fire danger period. You cannot burn off during the CFA declared fire danger period unless a CFA permit has been issued to you by the Country Fire Authority.
Illegal burning can be dangerous, especially during the CFA fire danger period or total fire ban days. If you notice excessive smoke or someone burning off, you may need to contact Council or emergency services.
