PLEASE PLAN AHEAD, do not ring a Fire Control Officer on the day you want to burn and expect a permit, as it may not be granted. You must give notice to your neighbours and the Shire once the permit is granted.

FIREBREAKS must be installed before 31 October each year and maintained clear of flammable material.
