On days of high fire danger you need to think about where you will be for the day and what you would do in the event of a fire. During Fire Danger Season there are strict conditions for lighting a fire, including a campfire. The Fire Danger Season is generally from 1 December to 30 April (however, this period can be adjusted according to seasonal conditions). All fires are prohibited on Total Fire Ban Days. Total Fire Ban Days When a Total Fire Ban is declared, all fires are completely banned. Fire bans are broadcast on radio and television from 4pm and apply for 24 hours (midnight to midnight). Further information can be obtained from the Bushfire Information Hotline on 1300 362 361 or the CFS website at www.cfs.sa.gov.au. Severe penalties apply for the lighting or maintaining of fires on Fire Ban Days. Days of high fire danger These are days when high temperatures, high winds (particularly north and north-westerly winds with low humidity) are predicted. On these days avoid activities that can place you in areas of high bushfire risk. Instead of bushwalking, go swimming or visit local attractions in low fire risk areas.
