Fire danger ratings

The Rural Fire Service issues information about fire danger ratings and fire bans. You can view ratings for today and tomorrow on the RFS website. During a total fire ban, no fires can be lit in the open and no fire permits are issued. 

Impact of bushfire smoke on health

Smoke can cause a range of health problems, particularly for people with asthma or lung conditions. To minimise the impact of bushfire smoke, NSW Health recommends people stay indoors and avoid rigorous exercise if possible. For more information, visit the Bushfire Smoke page on the NSW Health website. To view the current and forecast air quality readings, visit the Air Quality Index page on the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment website.
