The Shire of Dandaragan will be entering into the Restricted Burning Period as of 19 September 2019 and will continue up to and including 31 October 2019. Permits to burn are required during this period.

A Permit to Burn must be obtained from your local Fire Control Officer during the Restricted Burning Period. Permits are subject to a number of conditions but will not be issued for burning on Sundays or public holidays, unless approved by the Chief Bush Fire Control Officer.

If you cannot make contact with your closest possible Fire Control Officer to arrange a permit, please call the Community Emergency Services Co-ordinator on 9652 0800 or 0428 114 221.

Please take all necessary precautions when burning ensuring you read and understand the conditions of the permit before commencing.

The Shire of Dandaragan must be notified of all permit burning before commencing. In addition, ensure you notify all your neighbours as well as the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions, if your property adjoins their land.

If the fire danger forecast for the day issued by the Bureau of Meteorology is forecast for very high or above, all permits are cancelled and the burn cannot be implemented.
