Fire Restrictions

The Fire Danger Period and Fire Restrictions have come into effect as of 1:00am on Monday 16th December 2019

The Fire Danger Period for Mornington Peninsula Shire commenced at 1:00am on Monday 16th December 2019.

Once the Fire Danger Period has been declared, fire restrictions come into force. This means you cannot light a fire in the open air unless you have a permit or comply with certain requirements.

If you don’t obtain a permit, you could be breaking the law and may be prosecuted.
