Fire Danger Period starts 30 January

The Country Fire Authority (CFA) has declared a Fire Danger Period for Knox commencing Monday 30 January.

During this time, the use of fire in the community is restricted. The following activities are impacted:

  • Burning off is not permitted
  • Barbeques and campfires are restricted
  • We will not be issuing Permits to Burn

    If you have been issued a Permit to Burn, it will no longer be valid during a Fire Danger Period. You will need to reapply for a new permit once the Fire Danger Period ends. Refer to our Burning off webpage for more information.

To learn more about permitted, banned and restricted activities during a Fire Danger Period, refer to the CFA website.

We also encourage you to prepare your property for bushfire season and help protect your family and home. For advice on bushfire preparedness, view the Emergency preparedness booklet or visit the CFA website.

Phone 000 immediately if you witness any fires or suspicious behaviour.
