If you are concerned about bush fire hazards on your property, or the property adjacent to you, the Rural Fire Service (RFS) can provide advice regarding preparing your property against bush fires and what you have to do in the event of a bush fire.
This advice is free and can be arranged by contacting your local RFS Fire Control Centre and speaking with one of our officers.
The RFS is responsible for inspecting bush fire hazards, providing advice and if necessary, issuing notices to all landowners and managers to reduce hazards.

If a hazard does exist the RFS can issue a Bush Fire Hazard Reduction Notice, requesting the hazard be removed.
This Notice can be issued to Private & Public landowners.
If the Bush Fire Hazard Reduction Notice is not complied with, the RFS may remove hazard at the landowner’s cost.
