For all permits and enquiries contact the Queanbeyan Fire Control Centre (QFCC) on (02) 6128 0600

Fire season started in the Lake George Zone on 1st October.  The following information is provided by the NSW Rural Fire Service - see the full article
A Fire Permit is required for burning activities during the Bush Fire Danger Period. Fire Permits help ensure fire is used safely and minimise the danger to you, your property and the community.
The key things to remember:
  • You need a fire permit if it's the Bush Fire Danger Period.
  • Just because it's the Bush Fire Danger Period doesn't mean you can't use fire - but there are restrictions to ensure fire is used safely.
  • Getting a permit is free and easy. Contact your local Fire Control Centre.
  • There are heavy penalties if you don't follow restrictions or rules.
Please note that other restrictions, approvals and/or permits may apply to council areas where the Bush Fire Danger Period has not been declared. For example, backyard burning is not permitted in many suburban areas due to Environmental Regulations and Council or Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) permission is required.
Check these guides for more information on permits and reducing hazards on your property:
Please be extra vigilant during the fire season.
