FIRE DANGER During Fire Danger Season, generally from 17 November to 30 April, there are strict conditions for lighting any fire, including a campfire. On Total Fire Ban Days, all fires are banned. Avoid severe penalties by checking www.cfs.sa .gov.au before lighting any fires. On days of high fire danger where high temperatures, wind and low humidity are forecast, know your risk and what you will do to stay safe in the event of a fire. Download the Country Fire Service (CFS) FireApp or use the CFS Facebook page to stay informed. Observe the daily weather forecast and Fire Danger Ratings and listen for warning messages from the CFS on your local radio station. Further bushfire safety information is available by contacting the Bushfire Information Hotline on 1300 362 361 (TTY 13 36 77) or visit www.cfs.sa .gov.au Get the South Australian Guide on your mobile Scan this Quick Response code with your smart phone to access all the information you need during your travels.
