There are many different factors that will affect how you and your family respond to a bushfire in your area. A great way to make sure you are prepared is to complete a NSW Rural Fire Service Bushfire Survival Plan! Step number 1 in doing that?

Fire Danger Period
To burn during the Bushfire Danger Period you must first obtain a permit from the NSW Rural Fire Service. Permits are issued by the service to landholders who demonstrate they have sufficient equipment, persons and capacity to burn the nominated area. Burns are governed by weather and Fire Danger limits and will be automatically suspended if the danger goes to (or above) VERY HIGH.
There are now only nine weekends left until the start of the Bushfire Danger Period on October 1!. This means there is limited time to plan and conduct pile burns, hazard reductions and bonfires without needing a permit from the NSW RFS.
