If you’re planning on hosting a Democracy Sausage Sizzle this Saturday, you may need to obtain a free permit due to the severe fire danger warnings issued across certain part of the city’s surrounds.

At this time, the CFS has issued a Total Fire Ban and rated the fire danger level as ‘Severe’ for various areas across the state, including Mount Lofty Ranges.

This means, organisers will have to obtain a free permit in order to light a BBQ located further than 15m from their house. Hungry voters located in the following locations are currently impacted:

  • Adelaide Hills,
  • Alexandrina
  • Barossa
  • Burnside
  • Campbelltown
  • Gawler
  • Mitcham
  • Mount Barker
  • Onkaparinga
  • Playford
  • Salisbury
  • Tea Tree Gully

You can contact your local council now to grab a permit.
