You can subscribe to a free Bush Fire Safety Information SMS notification service.
The new service will enable residents to be directly informed about changes to:
- Burning periods;
- Fire Danger Ratings on days of Very High or above;
- Total Fire Bans;
- Harvest and Vehicle Movement Bans;
- Cancellation of burning permits;
- Other fire information all year round
Example of areas needing completion are outlined below
***Bush Fire Warnings are not included in this subscription/service.***
Emergency alerts will be sent from the Emergency Broadcast Network to notify people in affected areas by SMS/landline. Do not rely the Shire's Bush Fire Safety Information SMS notification in the event of a bush fire emergency. Leaving early is the safest option.
Please note: you no longer have to register to receive notifications from the Emergency Broadcast Network.
For up to date information on incidents and warnings visit the DFES website at
