Fire Danger Period 2023 Update
The Fire Danger Period will be lifted Tuesday 11 April 2023 for the following municipalities.
- Knox City Council
- Manningham Council
- Maroondah City Council
- Yarra Ranges Council
If you burn off after the conclusion of the Fire Danger Period, please be mindful that it is easy to lose control of your small burn-off. You can refer to the CFA brochure ‘Are you burning off safely?’ to ensure your burn remains safe and legal.
Take care and make sure you have water available at all times and never leave your burn-off unattended.
Before lighting a burn-off, we urge residents to always notify their neighbours and register their burn either online via firepermits.vic.gov.au or by calling the Burn-Off Notification Line on 1800 668 511.
Always check and adhere to your council’s local laws and regulations before burning off.
