The Fire Danger Period Commences 30th January 2023

The Fire Danger Period has been declared for the Mornington Peninsula and commences at 0100 hours on Monday 30 January 2023.

The commencement of the Fire Danger Period is determined on local existing and predicted conditions that lead to increased fire risk within our locality.

This means you cannot light a fire in the open air unless you have a permit or comply with certain requirements.

If you do not obtain a permit, you could be breaking the law and may be prosecuted.  Penalties may include a substantial fine and/or up to 12 months’ imprisonment.

For burn-offs prior and after the declared Fire Danger Period, ensure you comply with any municipal local laws and always register your burn online at Fire Permits Victoria.
