DRY LIGHTNING WARNING - all burning permits cancelled

Published on Thursday, 2 November 2023 at 2:00:00 PM

Fire weather is coming this weekend, with dry lightning expected.

Due to a high fire danger rating over this coming Friday and Saturday, burning permits are cancelled. This is to ensure your safety.

If you see smoke, call 000 immediately.

Stay aware - are you bushfire prepared? Dry lightning strikes can cause fires.

Grasslands, paddocks, reserves, parks, and bushland are environments that are at risk. Fire spreads quickly over these areas, so don’t leave it until it’s too late. Stay alert, and stay aware.

If your area has a single long road, you may need to find and alternative route to leave if a fire is near you. Make sure your bushfire plan is up to date - don’t leave it until it’s too late.

If you see an emergency vehicle, stay calm and give way by merging left if it is safe to do so. If you cannot move left safely, slow down or stop and let the emergency vehicle overtake you.

If you are travelling, make sure someone outside of your travel group knows your plans, destinations, and expected times.

What will you take? Where will you go? When will you leave?
