Bushfire danger season early
Due to unseasonably dry conditions, the bushfire danger period will start two weeks early.
NSW Rural Fire Service’s Southern Border Team announced the danger period in Albury City, Greater Hume, Federation, and Berrigan local government areas would commence on October 16.
Anyone wishing to light a fire during the bushfire danger period must obtain a permit from www.preventbushfires.com.au or their local permit issue officer or fire control centre.
Inspector Craig Warwick said permits ensured that fire was used safely and minimised danger to landholders, their property and the community.
