Fire Restrictions

Fire Restrictions and the Associated Fire Rating System

Fire Danger Rating Signs offer bushfire weather warnings as issued by the Bureau of Meteorology. By relating the factors of the degree of curing of the fuel (i.e. how dry it is), the windspeed and atmospheric moisture (Relative Humidity), a fire danger index figure is produced. It’s then expressed as a danger classification ranging from Low/Moderate to Catastrophic. This rating system, as illustrated below, ensures a realistic forecast as it¬† takes into account all elements that contribute to the probability of a fire and it’s severity.
