The Country Fire Service (CFS) has declared the start of the Fire Danger Season for the Lower South East.


Officials are urging residents to have a bush fire survival plan in place, and discuss the plan with family members.


Locals are being warned we can not light a wood fire in parks during the period - with all open fires, liquid fuel and gas stoves banned in all parks on Total Fire Ban Days.


Locals will need to apply for permits to burn off grass clippings or rubbish on properties, with no fires permitted to be lit in the open air on Total Fire Ban Days.


The use of campfires, angle grinders, chainsaws, ovens and solid fuel kettle BBQ are permitted; with conditions available at the CFA website.


Schedule 9 and 10 permits are available for application, issued by authorized CFS officers.


The period will not be fire free however, with the Department of Environment and Water carrying out planned burn offs.
