What is a Fire Danger Rating?

If you are in a bushfire risk area you need to know what the Fire Danger Rating is for your area, monitor local conditions and keep informed.

Understanding your Fire Danger Rating categories and what they mean to you will help to make decisions about what to do if a bushfire starts.

The Fire Danger Rating is based on the forecast weather conditions and gives you advise about the level of the bushfire threat on a particular day. When the rating is high, the threat of a bushfire increases.

When the Fire Danger Rating is Extreme or Catastrophic it means any fires that start are likely to be so fierce that even a well prepared, well prepared, well constructed and actively defended home may not survive a fire.

If this sort of weather is expected you should leave the day or hours before a fire might threaten as this is the best option for your survival.
