Information from the RFS

Are you prepared for the fire season?

The statutory Bush Fire Danger Period runs from 1 October 2015 to 31 March 2016.  If you are planning to
light a fire in the open during this time, you will need a permit.  
Detailed information on Fire Permits and the Bush Fire Danger Period can be
found on the NSW Rural Fire Service website at
http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/dsp_content.cfm?cat_id=1114.

If you require a permit to burn please
contact your local rural fire brigade (Stoney Creek, Queanbeyan City, or
Hoskingtown-Rossi) to arrange a permit inspection, but remember we are
volunteers and give up our personal time. In other words, it may take a little while
to organise.

Secondly, at our Brigade Open Afternoon
a few weeks ago we featured a number of websites and mobile apps that provide
an excellent source of bush fire information throughout the year.  I’ve included some of that information below:
