Fire Ban Definitions

Fire bans are a prevention measure to warn of predicted adverse fire weather

Total Fire Bans affect everyone, whether you live near bush or in a built up area. They are a prevention measure to warn you of a day of predicted adverse fire weather. On these days you should be particularly careful not to engage in activities which may cause a fire to start.

Check the Emergency WA website for current status and after 6pm to see if a ban has been declared for the next day.

Total Fire Bans relate to Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES), they are the agency that declares these through the Minister. There are a number of activities that you cannot do on a Total Fire Ban day

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS A PROPERTY OWNER OR RESIDENT TO BE AWARE OF ANY BANS IN PLACE BEFORE UNDERTAKING AN AGRICULTURAL ACTIVITY INCLUDING HARVESTING AS YOU COULD BE FINED FOR BREACHING A BAN.
