Fire Danger Ratings

All tourism operators should be familiar with the triggers and recommended actions for Code Red, Extreme and Severe Fire Danger Ratings, which tell you how bad a fire would be if one started.

Ratings are forecast using Bureau of Meteorology data for up to four days in advance, based on weather and other environmental conditions such as fuel load. During the warmer months, check Fire Danger Ratings for the North East Fire District every day so that you know when the local conditions are dangerous.

The rating is your prompt to take action to stay safe – and to make relevant fire information available to tourists in your care so that they can make their own informed decisions.
