Fire Ban Information

The Shire of Dalwallinu put fire restrictions in place such as prohibited burning periods or harvest and vehicle movement bans or it may be a Total FIRE BAN.

A Total Fire Ban is declared on days when fires are most likely to threaten lives and property. This is because of predicted extreme fire weather or when there are already widespread fires and firefighting resources are stretched.

Occasionally Total Fire Bans may be declared outside of a fire season (such as in May or June) due to other factors such as higher temperatures and expected strong winds preceding a storm front.
