TOTAL FIRE BAN - AUSTRALIA

20th Nov 2023

On a Total Fire Ban day, it is illegal to light an open-air fire or conduct any activity that could start a fire. Some of these activities are prescribed in the Bush Fires Regulations 1954 meaning they can be carried out during a TFB, providing you comply with the conditions listed here.

Businesses, public authorities or industries may be given an exemption for activities not prescribed in the Regulations, as long as conditions are met to ensure the activity does not start a fire. You can find more information about exemptions below.

A Total Fire Ban (TFB) is declared on days when fires are most likely to threaten lives and property. This is because of predicted extreme fire weather or when there are already widespread fires and firefighting resources are stretched.

Occasionally TFBs may be declared outside of a fire season (such as in May or June) due to other factors such as higher temperatures and expected strong winds preceding a storm front.

Department of Fire and Emergency Services WA - T is for...Total Fire Bans!  In case you missed it, it's pretty hot today and it's predicted to stay  that way over Christmas! ☀️  Means NO charcoal BBQ's, wood fired pizza ovens or any BBQ with a naked flame. Gas BBQ's however are ok to use as are Gas Pizza ovens

You cannot use any barbecue, smoker or cooker that requires solid fuel such as wood, briquettes, wood pellets or charcoal in an area that is not fully enclosed. This includes wood fired pizza ovens, pellet smokers and kettle barbecues. Areas which are not fully enclosed and where you cannot use your cooker include undercover areas such as patios, pergolas and huts which are open or partially open to the weather.

There are exceptions for businesses for this activity as long as certain are met, Please contact DFES for details..

** You must ensure you follow safety precautions if using a cooker in an enclosed space, ventilation MUST be adequate to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. If ventilation is not adequate, do not use a cooker, smoker, or barbeque in an enclosed area.

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE PLEASE CHECK! HERE IS A link to the WA Website:
