fdr-chartFire Danger Ratings

The Fire Danger Rating tells you how dangerous a fire would be if one started.

It helps you to know when conditions are dangerous enough to enact your bushfire survival plan.

Ratings are forecast using Bureau of Meteorology data for up to four days in advance, based on weather and other environmental conditions such as fuel load.

The rating is your prompt to take action to stay safe.

Fire Warnings

Neighbourhood safer places

Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSPs) are places of last resort when all other bushfire plans have failed.

Neighbourhood Safer Places are:

  • Locations that may provide some protection from direct flame and radiant heat, but they do not guarantee safety.
  • Not an alternative to planning to leave early or to stay and defend your property; they are a place of last resort if all other fire plans have failed.
  • An existing location and not a purpose-built, fire-proof structure.
