Your fire is your responsibility
Every year a small number of fires costs the Tasmanian community dearly. Some of these fires escape from smaller fires that were lit for good reasons. If people are more careful with fire the loss and damage to possessions, property and the environment can be greatly reduced. This guide provides simple advice on what everyone needs to do to have safer fires outdoors. Some restrictions on lighting fires apply all year round, and there are additional precautions that must be taken during Fire Permit Periods and on Days of Total Fire Ban.
