5 useful information | fleurieupeninsula.com.au FIRE DANGER The Fleurieu Peninsula is, and has been, susceptible to bush fires. On days of high fire danger, when high temperatures, high winds (particularly north and north-westerly winds with low humidity) are predicted, avoid activities that can place you in areas of high bushfire risk. During Fire Danger Season there are strict conditions for lighting a fire, including a campfire. The Fire Danger Season is generally from 1 December to 30 April (however, this period can be adjusted according to seasonal conditions). All fires are prohibited on Total Fire Ban Days. Total Fire Ban Days When a Total Fire Ban is declared, all fires are completely banned. Fire ban information is broadcast on radio and television from 4pm the previous day and applies for 24 hours (midnight to midnight). Further information can be obtained from the Bushfire Information Hotline on 1300 362 361 or the CFS website at www.cfs.sa.gov.au. Severe penalties apply for the lighting or maintaining of fires on Fire Ban Days. Get the South Australian Guide on your mobile.
