Burning off and hazards
Bushfire hazards and your property
The simple rule is – if it's your property, it's your hazard and your responsibility.
Fire permits help ensure that fire is used safely. A permit sets out the rules around how a fire is lit and maintained, and lets firefighters know when you are conducting burning activities on your property.
Reporting a bush fire hazard
If you are concerned about bush fire hazards on your property, or the property adjacent to you, the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) can provide advice regarding preparing your property against bush fires and what you have to do in the event of a bush fire.
Before you light that fire
Advice for landowners that are planning to burn vegetation on their property. An environmental approval and a Fire Permit may be required before you can light a pile burn (backyard burning) or a vegetation management burn.
